Wood River Wetland

Immerse yourself in the sounds of migratory birds and waterfowl in the Wood River Wetland on the north side of Agency Lake. A half-mile non-motorized accessible trail leads to expansive views of surrounding mountains, waterfowl viewing, and some of the best trout fishing in the Klamath Basin.

Know Before You Go:

  • Facilities include paved parking, a trail, a canoe launch, picnic areas and benches, toilets, and interpretive signs.
  • There is no drinking water.
  • Pets must be controlled on a leash.
  • The Wood River Wetland is open year-round for day use only.
  • Camping is available at nearby resorts, and on the Fremont-Winema National Forests.
  • Please note, the trails and roads are open to non-motorized travel only. Motorized access passes are available at the local Bureau of Land Management office in Klamath Falls for individuals with physical disabilities.
  • Waterfowl hunters should be aware that the Wood River Wetland is open daily two hours before sunrise and until a half hour after sunset. No pit blinds or permanent structures are allowed and no decoys or other equipment can be left unattended.

Point of Interest:

The 3,200-acre wetland is part of the historic delta of the Wood River adjacent to Agency Lake, and it includes three miles of public access to the river banks of the Wood River itself. Since acquiring the property in 1994, the Bureau of Land Management has focused primarily on wetland and river channel restoration. Water in the 3,200-acre wetland is manipulated to enhance the habitat for wetland plants and processes, while improving water quality for fish and wildlife in Wood River.
