The Historic Requa Inn
Located at the mouth of the Klamath River, in the small community of Klamath, California, is the historic Requa Inn. 
Built as a 22 room hotel in 1914 after a fire destroyed an older hotel built on the same site in the late 1800s, this old building has a character that we invite you to experience.

Greetings from the Commissioner,

Well, we hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and will continue having a great holiday season.  We are still having one of the driest winters in recent memory making it a great time to come up and see what Humboldt and Del Norte Counties have to offer.  This month we will be taking a closer look into Del Norte County, and one of it's most beautiful and photogenic natural resources, The Klamath River. 

Location Spotlight - The Klamath River

The majestic Klamath River flows southwest through Oregon, winding through northern California and eventually meeting the Pacific Ocean in Del Norte County.   As the second largest river in the state, the Klamath River includes many of the longest free-flowing stretches of river in California, along with excellent whitewater runs, it has become a popular recreational area.   

Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular activities along the Klamath with some stretches of Class I and II rapids that go on for over 100 miles.  Below Weitchpec the river widens and slows down, around 13 miles of the river from there is considered wild with another 175 miles of recreational area.  Of course fishing is popular along the river with CHinook Salmon and Steelhead Trout being the most sought after. 
Surrounded by many of Northern California's beautiful forests including the Six Rivers National Forest, Marble Mountain Wilderness Area, the Klamath National Forest, and the northern edge of the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.  Much of the Upper Klamath has been dammed and now are mainly farm lands. 
The Klamath is no newcomer to the world of feature films.  The area was used for large stretches of the original Last of the Mohicans (George B. Seitz, 1936, USA), Green Dolphin Street (Victor Saville, 1947, USA), and Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch, 1995, USA).  With a number different types of terrain and climate, the Klamath can meet almost any location need.
