Newspaper clippings from 1947 indicate that the Chiloquin airport was being enlarged and the runway was being lengthened to 3,700 and the entire airport was being leveled. The City of Chiloquin operated the airport until 1960 when 28.6 acres of property which included the airport was transferred to the Oregon Board of Aeronautics. The runway was surfaced in 1961 by Klamath County road department with Aeronautics paying for the improvements. A complete airport rehab was finished in 2012 with the rebuilding of the runway and apron. There are no facilities.
The community of Chiloquin is located east of Agency Lake, and is part of the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge. Chiloquin State Airport plays a significant role in the community from an economic standpoint, and also provides access and geographic coverage to the State's airport system. The airport is sometimes used by aircraft trying to land at Klamath Falls International Airport, but are unable to do so due to dense fog; these aircraft include express small package carriers. The airport is categorized as a Level 3 NPIAS airport.
