Historically, Klamath County’s economy was based on timber and agriculture, and although these natural resource industries now contribute only a small fraction to the region’s current economic activity and employment, their legacy lives on in local politics, community identity, and landscape. The area is currently experiencing a boom in housing construction as its proximity to California brings waves of retirees from population centers to the south. Outdoor recreation, such as hiking, hunting, and world-class trout fishing, as well as Oregon’s only National Park at Crater Lake, also contribute to the economy of the area. A complex of six National Wildlife Refuges-Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuges Complex-seasonally draw some of the largest concentrations of waterfowl in North America. The area is world-renowned as a birdwatcher’s paradise.
