About the Park
Crater Lake National Park brings in countless visitors every year and it’s not hard to see why! Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the nation, and was formed when a volcanic eruption caused the collapse of the mountain’s peak.
Rim Drive offers you a breathtaking a 33 mile scenic route around the lake with several pull offs you can use to get out and explore the surrounding area, take photos, or have a picnic lunch. There are about 30 overlooks with car parking, too, and 90 miles of hiking trails that weave throughout the park. Learn more about the different things the park has to offer its visitors here.
Neighboring Klamath County packs in even more activities for your family while visiting Crater Lake! You can also visit Lava Beds National Monument – another great educational spot for learning about volcanic eruptions and their aftermath.
