The Little Community With A Future
In The Heart Of The Cascades
Chemult is a small, friendly community located in scenic Central Oregon, on Highway 97N, just 30 miles from the north entrance to Crater Lake National Park. We find ourselves fortunate to live in such a magnificent outdoor recreation area.
Chemult is a convenient place to stay as you enjoy the variety of activities available year round. Amtrak stops here twice daily (headed north in the morning and south in the evening) and is a convenient and scenic way to travel to and from Chemult.
The summers bring us an abundance of sunshine in which to enjoy the wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, biking, bird watching, camping, boating, fishing, hunting, & exploring the Volcanic Legacy lands which surround us. Our closest campground, Digit Point, is located on beautiful Miller Lake just 12 miles west of Chemult. For more info about Digit Point see http://www.forestcamping.com/dow/pacficnw/wininfo.htm
Summer also brings Chemult Mountain Days, a family friendly festival held each July. Join us here among the beautiful pines for the 2015 Chemult Mountain Days held July 17-19 beginning at 3 pm on Friday, July 17 and ending at 2 pm on Sunday, July 19.
A sample of the activities include: "JUST ADD KIDZ" out of Klamath Falls will be bringing a bounce house, dunk tank (this is for grown-up kids too!) and lots of fun stuff for the kids. Our Chemult Fire & EMS has some great activities for the kids as well! Smokey the Bear is checking his schedule with the Chemult Ranger Station and hopes to be here too.
One of our sponsors - Air Link (Bend) will be on the ground with their medical helicopter for you to look in and ask questions about.
Please check the Chemult Mountain Days link on the right hand sidebar or the Chemult Mountain Days Facebook page for updates through the year.
We also welcome representatives of the Klamath Tribes who will share the history and culture of our area and the Ponderosa Mountain Men with a historical reenactment of the dress and lifestyle of mountain men.
And of course live music and dancing with "Cowboy Cadillac" at 7:00 Friday night and "The Substitutes" at 7:00 Saturday night all in a family friendly atmosphere (no alcohol served).
Plus delicious food and interesting merchandise from our vendors, non-profit booths, the pie-eating contest, woodcutters competition, and great raffle prizes donated from local businesses!
Also the Gilchrist Cruise will be coming through Chemult on their Poker Run on Saturday with their very cool cars!
Sunday morning features a special community-wide church service sponsored by our local church and led by Pastors Don & Mary Gentry of Chiloquin.
Location is the Chemult Community Park, located at the north end of town beside the Chemult Rural Fire Dept. at 109800 Hwy 97N.
The winters bring lots of snow to play in. Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding can’t be beat on our freshly groomed trails which meander through the forests to Crater Lake National Park, Crescent-O’Dell Lakes, Diamond Lake, and our very own Miller Lake.
