  • Loved the movie, later in the day attended a ranger talk at the lodge- it was great as well. Unfortunately the overlook wasn’t open due to the snow  more »
  • The south end of the park is the only open roads to the lake. We entered the center through the side door as the main door is still covered by feet of snow. The ranger there was helpful. The...  more »
  • At the south end of the lake, with a medium sized parking lot, there were plenty of spaces when I went there in October. It's open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm from mid-April to early November, and 10:00 am to....  more »

  • Got there 15 minutes before closing and we were basically blocked at the door by a ranger from entering. We tried to ask a couple of questions about the park but it was obvious the ranger was more interested in giving us the bum's rush than taking a moment to answer any questions. Disappointing experience.
  • Loved the movie about the origin of Crater lake 😍 the rangers were really engaging with visitors and creating a genuine fascination and wonder regarding the park...we visited the park in summer.. it was a little warm.. I would love to see the lake when it's winter.
  • The center was very clean and welcoming. I always enjoy my trip to Crater Lake. It has always been very special to me since I was very young. My grandparents and father would always take me out there to visit when I was on vacation. The center has many items of interest and information about the park. It is great to stop and view the video and information. If you have time and really want to have a little fun with your kids, do the Junior ranger program. Lots to learn with the kids. Great place to visit.
  • The Steel visitor center at Crater Lake is a pretty good Park visitor center. While a bit small to handle large crowds, it has on-duty park rangers to answer questions and advise on attractions and trail. A crater lake diarama is available to support their directions. A small gift shop is also housed in the center. Also, a they have a room that shows park-related movies. Wash rooms are also available. The center is located next to the Crater Lake Lodge.
  • A lot of great things about this place but WOW! The designs on their Crater Lake T-Shirts are incredible! I have some graphic design experience and it is TOUGH to find pretty shirts from tourist attractions, but Crater Lake has it figured out. So gorgeous me and a friend had to buy one each!
