Crater Lake

If you have never been to Crater Lake, you really should go.

Just off US-97 between the Willamette Pass and Klamath Falls is Crater Lake. It's beautiful deep blue water and spectacular views has brought almost a half million visitors a year to this remote spot in Oregon. The deep blue of the water comes from it's amazing depth over 1900 feet.

Crater Lake

For well over 100 years, people have come from all points of the globe to see this subtle, but beautiful place. It is the remnant of an ancient volcano crater. The rim is a circle more than 20 miles around and each point seems more beautiful than the last.

Crater Lake could be enjoyed as few hour detour or as a multi-day excursion. It is definitely worth checking out.

This is a fee park.
