Crater Lake National Park is one of the country’s crown jewels. No place else on earth combines a deep pure lake, sheer surrounding cliffs, a picturesque island and a violent volcanic past. Begin your journey by lodging in either the historic Crater Lake Lodge or in one of the peaceful cabins or campgrounds at Mazama Village. Whatever you choose, an authentic rustic northwest atmosphere will always surround you. Enjoy morning coffee as you watch the sun rise over the lake, or spend a quiet evening relaxing by the fireplace. Spend your days gazing at the lake from more than 20 scenic overlooks during a breathtaking trip around Crater Lake on Rim Drive.
