Lake of the Woods very busy with crowds, but plenty of room for fun

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — High temperatures prompting southern Oregonians to head for water Sunday.

As a result, Lake of the Woods Resort quickly hit capacity Sunday morning, forcing cars to wait to take their turn once somebody else left.

Boaters dealt with crowds and limited space, but still made room for fun.

It took us 45 minutes just to get in and get a parking spot.

Many people didn’t make reservations, they just woke up early and tried to beat as many as they could to the punch.

Everyone’s spirits were up despite the crowds and any delays during the day.

“Grandkids wanted to go swimming and tubing, but it’s a madhouse here,” Klamath Falls resident, Edward Valdez, said.

“We didn’t expect people to be here this early this morning, but at the same time, it’s been a while for everybody without having to stay a certain distance with masks on,” Houston, TX native, Anthony Vargas, said.  

The resort has a full calendar for the summer, including vintage movie nights and barbecues with live music.
