Upper Klamath Lake is nearly 30 miles long and up to eight miles wide. This lake is the largest freshwater body west of the Rockies. It has a surface area of 91,000 acres and 98 miles of shoreline. Recreation facilities are managed for Reclamation by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It sits at an elevation of 4140 feet. The lake depth fluctuates due to regulation of its water supply, ranging from 8 feet to 60 feet deep at average levels. It is fed by several streams, including the Williamson River and is drained by the Klamath River, which issues from the south end of the lake. It is connected by short channel to the smaller Agency Lake to the north. The Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge sits along the north edge of the lake. Recreational activities in the lake are not permitted when the water level is lower. Visitors are able to call the Fish and Wildlife service for details about the water level.
