Exploring the Area
Today was a day off for us here at Collier Memorial State Park, so we took advantage of the time off to explore some more sites in the area. Our main objective was Jackson Kimball State Park where the photo was taken. The park is the location of the headwaters of the Wood River, which springs out of the hillside cold and clear. There is also a small campground there. We also stopped at the Klamath Fish Hatchery on Crooked Creek. But our most impressive stop was a visit to the Winema National Forest’s Wood River Day Use Area. The paved trails, inviting picnic benches, and scenic winding Wood River made us dream of returning with fly rod and picnic basket.
