The B-71 radar station also known as Klamath River Radar Station, Crescent City Radar Station, Trinidad Radar Station was an Army Air Force early warning station in World War II. It is a rare survivor of a World War II early-warning radar station. It was constructed as a disguise to look like a farmhouse. To guard against potential invasions, the U.S. Army built "farm" buildings; the cinderblock structures, complete with shingled roofs, and fake windows and dormers, housed an early-warning radar station. From the air, the sea, and even the road, these buildings appeared to be part of a working farm. In fact, they housed a diesel generator, electronic equipment, and two 50-caliber anti-aircraft guns. This is one of 65 that were built all along the western coast of America during World War II. It is located on Coastal Dr. just south of the mouth of Klamath River.Our Klamath road trip planning site makes visiting Radar Station B-71 and other Klamath attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Interesting WW2 radar site. Short walk to buildings in remarkably good condition. Beautiful views along this coastal drive.
I love do-it-yourself history roadside attractions. Great information provided, signs were very informative and kept up. Trail down to the attraction was maintained. Felt safe, learned a lot, got some steps in. Trail was not overly challenging or long but did go downhill on the way to the attraction and uphill on the way out.
