Klamath Falls is a station on Amtrak's Coast Starlight service in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The station is located at 1600 Oak Avenue. The station building, which was built in 1916,[3] has a waiting room with a ticket agent. Klamath Falls is the southernmost station in Oregon.[3]

The Klamath Falls depot was built for the Southern Pacific Railroad and is composed of dark grey random ashlar walls with staggered light stone trim highlighting the windows and doors. A hipped roof with deep eaves supported by brackets protects passengers from inclement weather. Renovations that took place in 1999-2000 focused on the restrooms, ticket counter and entryways; new carpet and cabinets were also installed.[4]
