    Annie Creek Sno-Park is located 43 miles northwest of Klamath Falls, Oregon, near the Crater Lake National Park boundary. Its proximity is rich with history, as Fort Klamath lies less than 10 miles from the Sno-Park. Fort Klamath was established as a military outpost on the Oregon Trail in 1863. Today, it’s listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. If you want a break from recreating, it’s convenient to visit the Fort Klamath park and museum. Annie Creek offers more amenities than the average Sno-Park. As an official stop on the Oregon Volcanic Scenic Byway , you’ll find an interpretive kiosk, as well as two vaulted toilets. An attractive log-style warming shelter with wood stove and benches is open year round for picnics and relaxation. Snowmobilers can enjoy cruising under snow covered ponderosa pines and accessing miles and miles of trails. There are no managed cross country ski trails from Annie Creek. Besides snowmobiling, winter enthusiasts of all ages flock to Annie Creek Sno-Park for excellent sledding opportunities. Adjacent to the warming shelter lies a huge bowl shaped hill perfect for coasting your sled down. At an elevation of 4,400 feet, Annie Creek generally sees snow from late November through February.

    Recreation

    The entire length of the Upper Rogue River is closely followed by the Upper Rogue River Trail. The trail is hiker-only and easily traveled for short segments at a time.

Hikers can also enjoy the Rogue Gorge Trail System that travels from Farewell Bend Campground through Union Creek Campground and down to Natural Bridge Day Use Area.__

    Natural Features

    The Upper Rogue River is fed by snowmelt and springs originating on the peaks of the Cascade Range, including the slopes of Mt. Mazama___the volcanic caldera that contains Crater Lake. Along the uppermost portion of the Upper Rogue, the river is narrow and shallow, but very swift. The river has, for a two-mile stretch, carved more than 200 feet down into the Mazama pumice (which was deposited about 8,000 years ago during the explosion that created Crater Lake). Downstream, the Upper Rogue passes through the narrow, turbulent Rogue Gorge of black lava and soon plunges entirely underground (into a lava tube) for about 250 feet at Natural Bridge. Interpretive trails at both of these places provide good views of the river, with signs that explain the natural history.__

    Nearby Attractions

    Diamond Lake Resort, Crater Lake National Park, Lost Creek Lake, Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway, National Falls, Rogue Gorge, Natural Bridge and Mount McLoughlin are all wonderful sights to see.
