I've visited Crater Lake since I was a little girl, over 54 years, and I never get tired of the view. Whenever I go home to visit from Oklahoma, Crater Lake is always on my list!

Just a heads up that when we visited on July 14th (first day of the boat tours) all Wizard Island tours were cancelled due to the discovery of a damaged boat.

Absolutely beautiful views, outstanding, well worth going. Sapphire blue waters trapped in this enormous crater. The drive around the rim is an absolute must do.
