Klamath Falls is a train station in Klamath Falls, Oregon, served by Amtrak's Coast Starlight line. Located at 1600 Oak Avenue, the station building has a waiting room with a ticket agent. Klamath Falls is the southernmost station in Oregon.[3]

The Klamath Falls depot was built in 1916 for the Southern Pacific Railroad. It 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.[3][4]
