The WorldMark Running Y is perched on a ridge near the 143-square-mile Upper Klamath Lake. This timeshare resort is well-positioned to take advantage of one of the most diverse and pristine wildernesses in North America (there are seven national wildlife refuges here). The region's volcanic legacy has left the famous caldera of Crater Lake, lava beds, fumaroles and towering peaks. It also happens to be the route birds prefer for their western migrations. In fact, bald eagles by the hundreds winter in the Klamath Basin. Such a backdrop invites exploration. So choose your transport—foot, tire, or wing, and set forth. After several "Oh wow's" and a few "Look at that's," you'll be ready to return to your Running Y accommodations and all the comforts of home. Accommodations include one and two bedroom units, bunk beds in three bedroom chalets, cable TV, DVD player, stereo with CD player, telephone, gas fireplace, balcony/terrace, gas barbecue, Murphy Bed in some units, sleeper sofa in the chalets, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, high-speed Internet access, and hairdryer. Nearby attractions include Crater Lake National Park - known for its spectacular views, Klamath County Museum - with a focus on the anthropology, history, geology and wildlife of Klamath Basin, and Favell Museum of Western Art & Artifacts - a large miniature firearm collection as well as pioneer and Indian artifacts, baskets and paintings.
Another timeshare vacation opportunity is Eagle Crest Vacation Club at the Running Y. This resort offers a rare combination of natural splendor and civilized comforts. The Ranch is situated on the wooded shores of Upper Klamath Lake, the largest natural body of fresh water in the Northwest. The resort is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway, ideal for canoeing, kayaking, and home to many species of birds including the rare bald eagle.
