Picnic under old-growth Ponderosa Pines, and keep a watchful eye for abundant wildlife--Mule Deer, Coyote and Cougar drop by every once in a while. You'll find picnic tables and a vault toilet onsite. The mixed forest bordering the highway (through an area the locals call Drew's Gap) is especially colorful in the fall thanks to stands of Quaking Aspen.
Booth Wayside is a good location to stop to stretch and take a break while driving along Highway 140 between Klamath Falls and Lakeview.
Obtained from various owners between 1928 and 1944. The initial holding was a gift of 50 acres from Robert A. Booth (1858-1944), president of the Oregon Land and Live Stock Company, former chairman of the Oregon State Highway Commission and member of Governor I.L. Patterson’s State Park Commission (which met only once, in 1929). His grand nephew, Brian Booth, became first chairman of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission created by legislative act in 1989. Booth Wayside was developed during the Depression era with assistance of Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees.
