Location is great, food is great, And the people are friendly which is always a plus! I like the mountain scenery, especially when the sun sets over the hills and the sky lights up.

Klamath is the ideal location to raise a family. I grew up in Klamath and although I had a great opportunity to attend a renown 4 year college in town, I decided to move away. Since graduating, I came back worked two years, left the country for two year, and have now been back for a year. Klamath is an affordable town with great opportunities for motivated individuals.
I like the outdoors here in Klamath County, However the County Government isn't managing the county well. There is a lot of potential in this area for more businesses, both in Klamath Falls and outlying areas. It's too bad that the local Government officials are to busy with their own agendas to see that there is a great opportunity here that they are wasting.
