Message Regarding Possible Government Shutdown
Updated on January 17, 2018, at 4:40 p.m. Mountain Time
Our parent company, Xanterra, is monitoring the possible U.S. government shutdown and is communicating frequently with the National Park Service (NPS). We have not received official word from the NPS regarding whether the parks will remain open should the shutdown of the government occur.
We remain optimistic that Congress will reach a resolution or, failing that, permit the national parks to remain open. If a government shutdown does occur that leads to closure of the national parks, we will be in contact with you via email or telephone to advise you of the situation, and then we will work to reschedule your trip or refund your deposit, at your discretion. If your visit to a national park is interrupted by a government shutdown and you are unable to use our facilities or services that you have previously paid for, you will be refunded the unused portion of your trip.
Thank you for your patience. We sincerely appreciate your choosing Xanterra Parks & Resorts for your travel needs.
Welcome to Crater Lake Lodges at Crater Lake National Park – the Only ‘In-Park’ Lodging.
Crater Lake National Park is one of the country’s crown jewels. No place else on earth combines a deep pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost 2,000 feet high; 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.
Unfortunately, the effects of climate change have reduced water flow in streams and rivers across the Upper Klamath Basin, including Crater Lake and the surrounding region. Because the region is significantly drier than normal, we have introduced the “Conserve for Crater” campaign with a goal to reduce daily water consumption significantly over historic levels. Find out how you can help here.
You can also explore the park by hiking up mountain peaks, cruising through the volcano area on daily boat tours, or learn more about the area’s natural and cultural history on a guided walk.
