History Of Crater Lake


Crater Lake has long attracted the wonder and admiration of people all over the world. It is the deepest lake in the United States, and the ninth deepest in the world. Its fresh water is some of the clearest found anywhere in the world. It is said that the lake resides in the crater of an inactive volcano.

Location and Weather

Crater Lake National Park is located in southern Oregon. Established in 1902, Crater Lake National Park is the fifth oldest national park in the United States and the only one in the state of Oregon. Admission to Park is free of charge.


From October to June, Crater Lake National Park is a snow-covered wilderness. November through April is assuredly snowy with poor visibility and fair to poor driving conditions, but wonderful skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. With snowfall still lingering on the ground in early July, winter defines Crater Lake National Park more than any other season.

Day 4: Snowmobiling (Finale Day)

The last activity you will be doing in the park is none other than snowmobiling. The rental for one of these machines is only $85.00 for 2 hours per person. The set trail is located outside the park boundaries to avoid any damage caused from the snowmobile to the wildlife. Once your time is up, you can return to your camp site and enjoy your final lunch hour for the day. At the end of the day, you should pack up your belongings, exit the park and reflect your experience at Crater Lake National Park!
