Welcome to Crater Lake Lodges at Crater Lake National Park – the Only ‘In-Park’ Lodging. Rooms are still available for 2016!
Crater Lake Lodge opens May 20, 2016. There are rooms available for most of the 2016 season – through October 10 – but please make reservations soon as the historic lodge is very popular.
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, one of the driest years in history has reduced water flow in streams and rivers across the Upper Klamath Basin, including Crater Lake and the surrounding region. This past winter, Crater Lake National Park received just 68 percent of its average snowfall. 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.
