Beatty is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Klamath County, Oregon, United States. Beatty is along Oregon Route 140 at the confluence of the Sycan and Sprague rivers and is 40 miles (64 km) by highway northeast of Klamath Falls.

Beatty was named for J. L. Beatty, a missionary who lived nearby when the area was in the Klamath Indian Reservation. The post office in Beatty, ZIP code 97621, was established in 1913. Toby "Winema" Riddle is buried near Beatty.

Beatty had a station on the Oregon, California and Eastern Railway, which by 1927 reached from Klamath Falls to Bly. A 1941 timetable lists Beatty as the 13th stop east of Klamath Falls between Sprague River and Sycan. After 1990, the rail line passing near Beatty became part of a rail trail, the OC&E Woods Line State Trail, managed by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
