Route From Flagstaff to Klamath Falls

Which route is better, US 95 in NV or US 395 in CA. Used to camp and backpack the eastern Sierra via 395 but that was back in the 60's thru 80's. Have not been there since.

The time of year will make a big difference. 95 is HOT in the summer. 395 can get messy in the winter.

Safe travels

395 is our absolute favorite!!! It's good for any size RV and lots of camping opportunities.

The southern part of US95 can be hot but it will cool as you climb over 5000ft, same goes for US395. But you will have to travel an extra 240 miles across the hot desert just to get to US395, then another 200 miles up US395 to get to 5000ft. In that same distance you could be in Reno on US395 by using US95. To take US95 use US93 out of Kingman. All of these roads are good.

I live in southern Oregon and have property near Kingman. If it were me this time of year I would take 95 and then go to Susanville and 89? to I-5 in northern CA.

Thank you for the good information.

1ciderdog, from I 5 would you then take 97 to Klamath Falls or wait until further north?

There is no reason to go to I-5 if your destination is Klamath Falls it's way out of the way. From Reno take US395 north to Alturas CA, CA299/CA139/OR39 into Klamath Falls. I was on that route last summer, all good roads.

Yes, 97 is a good highway.
