Permits for Whitewater Rafting on the Klamath River
Whitewater rafting permits are not required for non-commercial private rafters or kayakers on the Klamath River. However, commercial whitewater rafting outfitters operate on a permit basis and are required to fill out and submit a trip card at put-in. These trip cards DO NOT need to be submitted by private boaters.
Fire Permits and Restrictions
If you are camping in California in Klamath
National Forest a fire permit is required. California state law requires
a permit for all campfires and use of camping stoves on National Forest
land. If you are floating and/or camping along the Klamath River, you will
need a campfire permit. Campfires include wood fires, charcoal fires, and
portable stoves using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel.
All fires must be contained in a fire-pan. During extremely dry years all
open fires may be restricted.
Campfire permits are not required if you are camping in Oregon on Bureau of Land Management property. However, fire-bans may be in effect if it is an extremely dry season. All campfires must be contained in a fire pan or grill.
