A Place To Stay
For Highway 66 Camping
West of Klamath Falls
PP&L Recreation Park – Keno
When looking for a highway 66 camping location west of Klamath Falls you need to look no further than the Keno Recreation Park on the edge of Keno.
This park is a hidden jewel and is a quiet and affordable camping experience; yet it is only 20 minutes from Klamath Falls. The park has two camping areas with a heated restroom with showers.
Our favorite camping spot is in the camping area close to the restrooms on the eastern loop. In the distance you can see the boat ramp and a good view of the Klamath River. Even though there are no utilities or hookups, a good supply of well water is close by.
Each campsite has its own picnic table and fire pit and a generous area for setting up a tent. Fires can be lit only in the fire pit even during fire season. However, you will need to bring your own firewood.
I recommend taking a hike early in the morning close to the water’s edge. If you’re lucky you’ll see several hundred white pelicans gliding over the water. Take your binoculars for a closer look. Follow the trail on the bluff overlooking the bend in the river. This is a great location to observe other water fowl. The trail ends at the Keno Dam.
Tent/RV sites: 25 sites
