Had a great time on the trolley. Ranger Madeline Rose made the time so much more interesting and fun. She was a great story teller and had lots of interesting facts about the lake, park and area. Our driver said she was one of the best and he was correct. She had show & tell with many of her facts... More

This was a great way to learn a lot about crater lake and the park. The trolly has a park ranger on board that answers any questions that the visitors have. The trolley also makes multiple stops around the lake to take pictures from various view points which is nice. It is kind of expensive but in the end I... More

Wow! An amazing 2 hour journey with a ranger - couldn't ask for more! We stopped at all the look-outs and had plenty of opportunity to take pictures and ask questions. Take your own water and don't plan on any bathroom breaks!! A great way to see the lake!!

We got Ranger Dave who has worked at crater lake for 8 years & I believe 11 summers at Crater Lake. He obviously knew every fact about it & shared it in a fun way with us. 2hr 15 min drive around the rim with about 6 stops or so (each 5-10 min) each. Enough to take some photos, get... More

What a pleasant surprise. I didn't know this service existed. Our family took this trip last year to Crater lake. It was most memorable. The ride encircled the entire rim of the lake stopping at different sites allowing us plenty of photo opportunities. A park ranger told of its history. This year we will be taking our visiting guests from... More

The trolley ride, driver, and naturalist were excellent. It was nice to sit back and let others who know a lot more than I do, do the work. With the hotter temperatures I recommend going in the morning. Except while we were there 2 of the 3 mornings were hazy and it cleared up in the afternoon.....

I'm not normally a fan of being in the tourist cattle drive so when my wife brought this activity up; i eye'd it with suspicion. But it turned out to be money and time well spent. The trolleys are modest size so I do not believe that even a full-load would feel like a cattle drive. In our case, it... More

A very nice 2 hour tour around the rim with multiple stops for viewing and picture taking. The park guide was very informative and was quite the learning experience!

This is the way to experience beautiful Crater Lake. The Ranger on board shared his vast knowledge with us about crater lake. The bus driver made several photo stops. Sit back, relax, enjoy the beautiful views and leave the driving to them!
