  • Rim Village is located on above Crater Lake and hosts a visitors center, cafe and the Crater Lake Lodge. The trolley also leaves from here. It is all in one walking distance area. The Rim Trail also.....  more »
  • Rim Village is a gift shop and deli which fits right in with the rest of the dilapidated, miss-managed properties around the Rim. Worth missing.  more »
  • We stopped by the Rim Village and walked along the rim trail to view the lake. There is plenty of parking but most spots were taken as it is very crowded here. Walked out to a view point and you...  more »

  • Staff are polite and knowledgeable. Decent grab and go hot food menu. Remember, there is seating to eat by going up the stairs. This way you don't have to stand in-between the tables and eat your hot dog.....
  • When visiting Crater Lake National Park, it is a pre-requisite for our family to stop here at Rim Village. It is a great spot to enjoy a picnic, use the facilities, and soak in the views with the easiest "trail" offering lovely views out to Wizard Island, the rock ship formation, and the overlook to see for yourself the world's clearest and purest lake water. It can get crowded so if you are looking for solitude in the forest and lake nature, avoid this spot - especially the cafe and gift shop.
  • As expected, it was grand. The water was so blue, the temperature was very comfortable. There was a slight breeze. We met some nice people from other countries. Plenty of picture opportunities. What a wonderful day!!
  • Sitting on the south rim of Crater Lake the views are astounding. Parking was pretty full even though it is spread out over quite a distance. There's a small gift shop and place to buy a salad or hotdog or other quick meal.
  • Great little spot. Cute lodge. Did not try the restaurant. A couple of gift shops. Great viewing areas. Several ranger programs.
