The Wood River flows through Klamath County, Oregon with headwaters emanating from a large natural spring located in Jackson Kimball State Recreation Site. The aquifer that feeds the spring is believed to originate 20 miles to the northwest in the east side drainage of Crater Lake National Park. The Wood River meanders through pine forest and agricultural land for 18 miles before flowing into Agency Lake.

    The Wood River area contains diverse landscapes: crystal clear bright blue water, grasslands, and Douglas Fir forests. There are many places available for dispersed camping right next to the river.

    The springs are a unique opportunity to see a river coming out of the ground. The water surrounding the springs is more of a pond or a lake. But towards the western edge, the true flow begins and the meandering shape forms.

    This is a great place to relax on a summer day. Bring a kayak and play around on the river, or go for a hike around the springs.
