In the end I found a one way rental from Penske & it cost me a small fortune.

This is the right time of year to travel the distance.

I've heard of quite a few folks buying a used truck with Box (Box Van) to move their goods, then sell it when finished moving.

I am also moving to klamath falls. Married with a two year old coming from the portland area where I have lived most my life. Wanted to know good areas to live, looking online running y looks nice but not sure if people actually live there or just vacation there. We would like to live in something thats on the newer side and there is not a lot to rent on websites I found listed in other posts. Any [FONT=Verdana]suggestions[/FONT] on neighborhoods or rental listing sites?

Running Y is more of a planned resort/destination community complete with its own golf course, skating rink, etc. It's located a few miles west of Klamath on 140.

For a start on rentals, try the Classifieds section of the local paper www.heraldandnews.com


Personally, I'd give anything in the Mill's Addition a pass; the houses tend to be quite small and some areas of the neighbourhood are a little unkempt.

Seeing is believing, though, so why not just drive down for a weekend and check things out in person?

Jason and anyone else

sorry I didn't check this site after I arrived in Klamath Falls! I obviously made it here ok and got moving and everything situated. I had found a nice apartment on eldorado avenue, but have since moved.

I really like Klamath Falls so far, its been about a year. The best part is the weather and the proximity to outdoors oppurtunity. I love Gerber reservoir area for solitude and stars, spencer creek area for more of a wet woods area. We also love going to Moore park and playing frisbee golf/ mountain biking. I have also joined the city orchestra and am having a great time.

The only real problem I have is that there is no where really close to go swimming, but I can live with that for right now.

The way I see it with K-falls is that you get what you make of it, you have to search a little bit for fun oppurtunites but once you start looking the options are limitless!

I also thought that the Ross Ragland puts on a good show. I don't mind the lack of shopping either, I think it's a good thing for my wallet.

I agree that homedale area has some nice houses that are cheaper, the hotsprings neighborhoods are really nice too. If you are looking for a nice rental townhouse check out foot hills drive, there is a huge rental community down there and they all look pretty nice.

Any other questions, let me know!

Glad to hear you're happy with the move.

Have you tried the Ella Redkey pool? http://www.harbortennisandfitness.co...eySchedule.pdf

Lake of the Woods is also good for a cool dip if you don't mind a little drive.

That OR route 66 between Klamath and Ashland, is a tough one, especially the last 20 miles west...it's not for the faint of heart...

My dad is from Klamath Falls, so I've been there enough times to tell you about it. The scenery is nice, but that's about all that is... It's much more conservative and redneck than most of Oregon. It's extraordinarily boring, and economically depressed as well. It can also get really cold at night. I'd recommend getting chains or 4-wheel drive, so you can go to Medford all year round, since they actually have stuff to do.

As to meeting people, smaller towns like Klamath Falls have a lot of small clubs and I would check with the Chamber of Commerce. Something that may interest you is that there may still be a nice group that works to help with the large bird wildlife refuge just outside town. If you have any interest in churches, I would suggest the local Calvary Chapels as they are younger and cater more to "youngins".

As to work for civil engineers, I'm thinking probably not. Lastly, Medford is about 70 miles west over the cascades on Hwy 140. A very nice drive! Along the way a short detour takes you to the Mountain Lakes Wilderness Area. There is a 3 mile loop with 7 lakes on it and one (Lake Natasha) is the clearest lake in North America for its size- just like looking thru glass. We used to go there and swim in late summer.

Klamath Falls is a dusty, rusty, lusty old town. Many people are a bit disappointed with the town itself. However, the schools are good and the surrounding areas in every direction are wonderful. Before you move on from there, get to really know the area- you'll be glad you did.
What area is considered "the south suburbs"?
