About Our City
The City of Chiloquin, Oregon is located approximately 30 miles north of Klamath Falls in Klamath County. It is one mile east of Highway 97. The City limits boast of a population of 720. There is a small airport that parallels the highway. Chiloquin has an altitude of 4178 feet. It is nestled in a small valley surrounded by mountains. The Williamson River runs through the center of town and joins with the Sprague River just to the south of the City limits. Fishing and hunting are favorite sports here. There are deer, elk, and ducks in the area. Agency Lake is a favorite fishing place, while the Williamson River is considered one of Oregon's top trophy fly fishing waters.
Chiloquin is rich in its Indian heritage. A major portion of the population is of Native American descent. Chiloquin was the only incorporated city on an Indian Reservation, being incorporated in 1926. The Klamath Tribes of the area are the Klamath, Modoc, and Yahooskin Band of Snake Paiute. There are Indian Pow-Wows, rodeos, parades, and several other celebrations held each year which are open to the public.
The Klamath Tribes opened a casino in July 1997. The casino, Kla-mo-ya, is just two miles south of Chiloquin on Highway 97.
The area has a dry climate with an average rainfall of 12 inches per year. Because of the altitude, Chiloquin does get snow, but it usually does not last too long as there is an abundance of sunshine each year. There are many kinds of trees in the area, including Ponderosa Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Willows, and Aspen just to mention a few. The area has an abundance of sagebrush that pops up on the vacant lands with regularity. The temperatures of the area range from lows of minus 30 to highs of 100. Generally, however, our summers are quite mild and our winters rarely see temperatures of less than 0.
The industry of the area has been badly impacted due to the timber industry. The only mill in town closed some years ago, making widespread unemployment in the area. There is no major industry in the City at the present time; however a few miles from Chiloquin, Jeld-Wen has a large door manufacturing plant.
The City has two food markets, a medical center, a hardware store, two art galleries, a gift shop, a log-furniture gallery, a service station/mini-mart, two eating establishments, a book store, a library, an upholstery shop, a Post Office, and two beauty shops, plus a large Community Center. The City has an elementary and high school, kindergarten, and Head Start. There are several different denominations of churches in the City. It is also the home of the Klamath Tribes Administration, as well as the Klamath Tribal Health. Also, the City has a volunteer fire department and a volunteer ambulance service.
Crater Lake National Park is 30 miles from Chiloquin. Another point of interest is Collier Park, which is just a few miles out of the City. Chiloquin is located 120 miles south of Bend, which makes easy access to the skiing areas and the snowmobile trails.
Regular Council Meetings:
the second Monday and fourth Tuesday of each month, 6:30 pm at the Chiloquin City Hall.
Fair Housing Policy
It is the policy of the City of Chiloquin to support a Fair Housing Program to ensure equal opportunity in housing for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability (physical and mental), familial status (children) or national origin.
For more information on fair housing programs please check out the following links:
The Fair Housing Council of Oregon (FHCO) is a nonprofit civil rights organization driven to eliminate illegal housing discrimination through enforcement and education across Oregon and southwest Washington.
We promote equal access to housing by providing education, outreach, technical assistance, and enforcement opportunities specifically related to federal, state, and local fair housing laws. These laws protect against illegal housing discrimination based on "protected class status" in any housing transaction and, in fact, any housing situation.
Klamath Housing Authority.
Created in 1975 as South Central Oregon Housing Association Inc to address the housing needs of lower income households for all of Klamath County residents.
Tribal Housing Department
Tribal Housing Department administers three NAHASDA (Native American Housing Assistance and Self-determination Act) programs designed to provide low and very low-income Tribal families with the opportunities for safe and decent housing. These three programs provide Acquisition (Home ownership), Section 8 Rental Assistance and Low-Rent Assistance to eligible Tribal families residing in Klamath County. In the future, this department will provide a broader scope of assistance that will address each Tribal families' needs, so that every Tribal member has a safe, decent, and affordable place to live.
