A true national treasure! Wonderful hikes for a variety of fitness levels. Plus, fantastic views from the roads and turn-offs for those who don't hike at all. A beautiful historic lodge with a good restaurant and gift shop.

Crater Lake is a gorgeous body of water captured within the Center of a volcano. The rugged walls of the volcano top provides an interesting background for the water within the lake. The drive around the rim is both breathtaking and gorgeous. There are stops along the Road that provides great opportunities to take beautiful pictures. There is a lodge on the rim of the lake that will allow you to enjoy a spectacular meal with a spectacular View.

I've been to the Grand Canyon 3 times, but this first visit to Crater Lake reminded me of my first visit there.
This place is awesome.
The lake is a vast blue stunning beautiful picture that everyone just stands to admire or take pictures.
Wizard Island at the southern end of the lake adds to the scenery .
Visit the lodge just to see its history, which reminds me of the lodge in Yellowstone park, and stay there if you can and use the rocking chairs on the balcony.
There are a lot of road works as you travel round the park, and suggest you get there before 10am to avoid congestion and parking difficulties.
This place has to be on everyone's bucket list.

Never imagined this place to be so gorgeous - the lake is absolutely awesome - there are so many hikes in the park ranging from easy to strenuous. We spent 3 nights at the Mazama cabins and loved the whole experience. The cabins are 7 miles from the rim.

This park is stunningly beautiful! Definitely take the Cleetwood Cove Trail on the East Rim side. The brochure says it’s “strenuous,” but I didn’t think it was too difficult. The reward is getting to jump off a cliff (or easing your way in to) Crater Lake. This park was not too crowded, so visit soon!
