Welcome to a majestic natural setting – enjoyed by all who come
Harriman Springs Resort & Marina is 20-some miles northwest of Klamath Falls on the shores of Upper Klamath Lake in Rocky Point, Oregon. At the turn of the 20th Century, the mountains surrounding Rocky Point were known as the “Switzerland of the United States.” Early visitors from around the world came through on their way to visit nearby Crater Lake.

Collier Memorial State Park features a campground, outdoor museum of historic logging equipment, relocated pioneer village, and a new four-corral, primitive horse camp and trailhead. At the state's finest logging museum, you'll see rare and antique logging equipment dating to the 1880s, as well as more recent pieces.

Deep Water in a Sleeping Volcano

Crater Lake inspires awe. Native Americans witnessed its formation 7,700 years ago when a violent eruption triggered the collapse of a tall peak. Scientists marvel at its purity: fed by rain and snow, it’s the deepest lake in the USA and one of the most pristine on earth. Artists, photographers, and sightseers gaze in wonder at its blue water and stunning setting atop the Cascade Mountain Range.
