  • My husband and I hiked down to swim in Crater Lake 5 times this August; we try to make that hike at least once every summer. While it's only 1.1 miles each way, the altitude can make breathing harder ...  more »
  • This is, I believe, the only trail that winds down to the lake. Walking down is easy, walking up is not. Make sure you take the boat ride, it is not to be missed.  more »

Where to stay in Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake National Park operates two campgrounds inside of the park: Mazama Campground, which offers reservations, and Lost Creek Campground, which functions on a first-come, first-served basis. The park also offers accommodations in Crater Lake Lodge and Mazama Village Cabins, with the former open from mid-May through mid-October and the latter open from late May until early October. The park's isolated location limits accommodation options outside its boundaries, but you can find a few campgrounds, inns, and bed and breakfasts in the surrounding communities. Some of these are clustered in the town of Fort Klamath, just south of the park's entrance.
