We didn’t plan on visiting Crater Lake when we started our trip. I must say I’m so happy we went! It was worth the extra time and drive. Simply awe inspiring.

Had to show this park to an out-of-town visitor. Awesome. Plenty of parking, but still park was filled with visitors. All in all a pleasant visit. The view from the Sinnott and picture opportunities will last forever.

Not sure what to say that hasn’t been said about this beautiful National Park. Our National Park system is a true treasure for all to enjoy. Do take time to watch movie which is 20 minutes in length. Great overview of lake and its history....More

Drove the Rogue river and hiked the natural bridge and then up to Crater Lake. An amazing story of the creation, 22 minute film, and then to view and hike spectacular Crater Lake

We visited on October 15th & it had just snowed two days prior. It was breathtaking all covered in snow. The East rim drive was closed. We visited in the morning and went up again at sunset. Very beautiful. A must see visit.

This is a beautiful lake, but comparing it to Lake Tahoe where my children live, I'd say Tahoe is bigger and better. But if you're in this area, it's certainly worth a visit.

This is a must see National Park. The Lodge is a great place to experience the deepest lake in the USA with crystal clear water. Great place to bicycle if you like hilly terrain. The lodge is beautiful and kept clean.

We had business in Medford and only a partial day to experience the Rogue River areas. After seeing the Natural Bridge and Rogue River Gorge (both amazing and easy walks), we decided to go the extra way to Rim Village. It was well worth the...More

The park is open year round so you should be able to get to the lake. The west rim is closed for construction so you can't do a driving loop around the lake. But you can take hikes and also do the east rim drive with plenty... More
