In reading other reviews, I see that this is being confused with the Hwy 101 Klamath bridge. This Memorial is NOT the bridge! You get to this Memorial by turning west on Klamath Beach Road -- this is not directly on Hwy 101. This is...More

The glimpse of the view from the bridge alludes to the beauty of the area - but we found nowhere to safely stop to admire it from. Maybe, in time, somewhere will be provided given the relative popularity. Liked the golden bear...

This small spot is worth seeing, for the historical value. There is parking across the street (folks were stopping in the middle of the road--not cool). There is a plaque giving the history of this specific spot. Great.
