Sprague River, Oregon 79639
This stunning 1.03-acre parcel fronts both Clearwater Street and paved Drews Rd. It slopes gently down from Drews Road toward the Sprague River Valley. There are a few trees on the property, but it is covered mostly in small native shrubs and grasses. The gentle slope would allow you to have absolutely incredible views of the river!
With a two-story home and maybe a deck, you could spend your time watching the ducks and geese land in the river, and the wildlife that comes down to drink from the river!
The lush green valley has a few cows that peacefully graze and some small family farms. It is rural here, but not remote. You are only a few miles to the small community of Sprague River, about 20 miles from Chiloquin, which has about 700 people, and about an hour to the city of Klamath Falls, which has a modern hospital, large box stores for shopping, and airport, active nightlife and all the amenities you would expect from a larger city.
If you travel north on Hwy 97 about 100 miles, you reach Bend, which is the largest city in Central Oregon and an epicenter for educational, spiritual, artistic, cultural, and recreational activities.
The Sprague River Valley is in the rain shadow of the mighty Cascade Mountains and is considered high desert. It doesn't get the typical rain that the rest of Oregon is famous for, and averages around 300 days of sunshine per year!
There are many people in the area that successfully opt for solar or wind power and live off-grid which may be a possibility here if you choose. As always though, be sure and check with local jurisdictions for the costs and viability of your plans.
There is power on Drews Road if you choose to stay on the grid. The property would need a septic and a well before building. There are no time requirements for building, and modular homes are allowed here. County well logs show that most of the wells in the area are productive and not too deep.
If you choose not to build right away, the property would make an excellent base camp or vacation property to explore the unlimited outdoor recreation that the area offers!
Excellent fishing in both the Sprague and Williamson Rivers, hiking, camping, OHV/ATV trails, mountain biking, and horseback riding in the over 1,000,000 acres of public lands that surround the area. There are crystal-clear rivers and alpine lakes, high deserts, snow-capped peaks, and lush green valleys just waiting for you to explore!

Clearwater street is compacted dirt, and a little rough, but we had no trouble at all accessing it without 4WD. The top of the property faces Drews Rd. which is paved. Power is to Drews Rd, if you decide to utilize the grid as your power source, be sure and check with the utility companies for costs and distance.
The community of Sprague River is just down the road. There is a post office, small store, a deli, convivence store and and gas station and a few other shops. It is a rural community, but you are able to get supplies there. The town of Chiloquin is about 20 minutes away, and sits on Hwy 97. Klamath Falls is about an hour from here.
The property has a few trees, and is covered in small native shrubs and grasses.
It is possible to have a horse or a few animals here, depending on how much room they need. There is definitely room for a garden and maybe some chickens. It does get cold here in the winters though, so you may need to cover you spring garden starts from the late frosts.
This is a Google Earth Photo showing the property elevated so you can get an idea how close you are to the river, and the size and shape of the property.
The Sprague River flows all year from high up in the nearby mountains. It changes throughout its course, but here it meanders slowly through the Sprague River Valley where it provides water for the wildlife, and an occasional trophy-sized trout for lucky fishermen!
The Sprague River converges with the Williamson River in Chiloquin. This photo was taken in the early morning from the park in Chiloquin at the boat launching facility. The rivers then flow on to the Upper Klamath Lake and provide it with its primary source of fresh water.
The soils here are primarily volcanic loam. The area is considered high desert, so it doesn't get the typical rainfall totals that the west side of the Cascades receives. It does get over 300 days of sunshine though, so even when its cold outside, the sun shines most of the time.
Another photo of what your views could be from your new home! There are cows and family farms in the valley, but it is very rural here. Mostly you will see an occasional fisherman and the abundant wildlife that comes down to the valley floor.
The area is in the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds. Over 300 species of birds come through the area, including eagles, osprey, hawks, songbirds, geese, ducks, and even pelicans! The Klamath Lake area has the largest congregation of wintering bald eagles in the lower 48 states!
This photo was taken in the fall, so some of the grasses have lost their color as they get ready for winter, but much of the valley stays green all year with natural irrigation from the river. In the springtime the valley is covered with wildflowers!
