'Lakeview is a great place to live ... except for shopping' according to one waitress at Jerry's Restaurant. With a population a little over 2000 it is the center of activity in the region. Serious shopping is 90 miles away in Klamath Falls or 150 miles away in Bend. At 4200 ft above sea level Lakeview is one of the highest cities in Oregon. The town layout is compact with ranches and grazing livestock pushing up against the city limits. This is another Oregon town that has a history of multiple downtown fires around 1900. Replacement buildings were made of brick with corregated iron roofs.
