This large, 5.42~Acre property sits high on a plateau above the Sprague River Valley. It has an Old West vibe out here, a feeling of freedom, a place to get away from a busy lifestyle and relax, surrounded by wilderness. There is plenty of wide-open space here, and the area gets over 300 days of sunshine per year, so many people opt for living off-grid with solar power. Maybe you are looking for a place in the country to have a few horses, maybe some chickens, rabbits, a garden or mini-farm. This might just be that place!

This large, 5.42~Acre property sits on a high plateau about a mile away from the Sprague River! This would be a great property to explore off-grid living! It just feels like freedom from a busy lifestyle, a change to a rural kind of living. Owner May Carry Financing!
Although it does get cold in the winter here, the area gets around 300 days of sunshine per year! There are other homes in the area that successfully rely on solar power. The property would need a well. Klamath County well logs show that wells in the area are productive and not too deep. They are not on the property, but there are even natural springs nearby! It would also need to have a perk for septic. If you plan to bring in power, be sure and check with the utility companies to verify distance and costs.
If you choose not to build right away, this property will make a great place for a base camp or vacation spot to explore the nearby wilderness, lakes, and rivers. After purchasing the property, there is no time limit to build. The Freemont-Winema National Forest is nearby with over 1,000,000 acres of public lands! If you love outdoor activities, this is the perfect place! Hunting, fishing, horseback riding, fly-fishing camping, hiking, OHV riding, there is so much to do!
It's about an hour to Crater Lake National Park, and the Cascade Mountains for winter skiing and snowboarding, you could travel up to the Willamette Pass or travel north to Bend to the ski resort at Mt. Bachelor. There are also many trails for cross-country skiing, sledding, tubing, or just playing in the mountain snow!
The community of Sprague River is just down the road.
They have a post office, deli, gas station, and a few shops. When we stopped at the store in town the people were very friendly and eager to help us! The town of Chiloquin is about 20 minutes away, or if you want to travel to a larger city, Klamath Falls is about 45 minutes south on Hwy 97. This Highway can also take you north a few miles to the Klay-Mo-Ya Casino or on to Bend, Oregon which is the largest city in Central Oregon and a hub for recreational, cultural, educational, agricultural, and artistic events.
The air is clear here, at night there is almost no light pollution, and stargazing is spectacular! One of the things that struck me the most while standing on the property is how quiet it is! You can hear the wind, and a few birds, a very far away dog barking, but mostly just the quiet peacefulness of the natural landscape that surrounds you here.

This parcel map shows the location of the property in relation to the surrounding roads and parcels within the subdivision.
The property would need a perk test and septic and a well. County well logs show that wells in the area are productive. Power is a distance away, so please verify costs with the power company, and building plans with Klamath County. Wind or solar power might be good option. This is one of those unique places where off-grid living is possible. We did get cell service while on the property.
This is the Sprague River as it meanders through the farm and pasture lands in the valley below the plateau. The river is just over a mile away from the property!
If you choose not to build yet, the property would make a great spot for a base camp or vacation spot to explore the nearby recreational opportunities!
This parcel map shows the terrain and proximity to the Sprague River.
The property sits above 4,000 feet elevation, and it does get cold here in the winters, and warm in the summers, but the spring and fall are just perfect, and in the springtime the whole area is covered in green grass, sage brush, rabbit brush, and native wildflowers!
The roads to the subdivision are paved, and within the subdivision they are dirt and gravel. We had no trouble at all accessing the property.
The Freemont-Winema National Forest is nearby with over 1,000,000 acres of public lands. This would be a great spot to use as a base-camp to explore the nearby wilderness. Horseback riding, OHV/ATV riding, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, if there is something outdoors you love to do, there is likely a place nearby to do what you love!
It was a little hazy on the day we took the pictures due to a wildfire in California. The smoke was blowing in from the Klamath Basin. Usually the skies are clear and with almost no light pollution, the stargazing at night from here is spectacular!
You can see the Cascade Mountains off in the distance to the west. Crater Lake National Park is just an hour away and is breathtakingly beautiful! The nearby Cascade Mountains offer unlimited winter recreation! Skiing and snowboarding in the winter months are nearby at the Willamette Pass or Mt. Bachelor. In the summer months, there are many rivers and lakes in the area and places to hike, camp, hunt, or fish, this is definitely the place to be if you love the outdoors!
This was taken a little farther west on the Sprague River, more toward Chiloquin, where it meets the Willamson River. Chiloquin is about 20 miles away. You can easily get on HWY 97 from there and travel south to Klamath Falls, or North to Bend for larger shopping trips, cultural events, concerts, education and medical facilities. The Sprague river offers excellent fly-fishing, mostly for trout, some large, trophy sized trout have been caught here recently! You can canoe, kayak, float, swim, fish, or just relax and watch the water and the wildlife!
The area is known for being on the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds. Over 400 species of birds make their way through the area, including bald eagles! The Klamath Basin has the largest congregation of wintering bald eagles in the lower 48 states! You can also see sandhill cranes, geese, ducks, songbirds, and pelicans! I took this photo of sandhill cranes very near this property in the subdivision.
