Great place that we started our trip at. There are restrooms, a large gift shop, a café that sells food cafeteria style -they are pricey! I had a PB&J on wheat for $4.50; large hotdogs were $5.50. Bring your own food, drinks & snacks if possible. There are some tables & chairs in the café area, but plenty of seating... More

The National park Rom Village is a hub of gifts shops, munchies and groceries you might need is camping, touring or staying at the magnificent lodge. The wait staff are professional and helpful and we especially enjoyed the Crater Lake-specific gift items. The Rim Village also includes a fine help desk for all questions about the caldera and environs. Super!

There are great views of Crater Lake and hiking trails from the village rim. There is also a gift shop and a small cafe. The parking lot tends to fill later in the day, so I suggest going early.

These buildings are beautifully preserved. The stone and wood architecture is amazing. Heading into the lodge, to the left, is a small museum to understand how this village began. Keep in mind, the road to get to it is very curvy. Not a good idea to take a rig over 35-40'.

I agree with the other reviews about this Village. The restaurant prices were ridiculous for what you got although our for was acceptable. However they had run out of lettuce for the sandwiches and my friend's veggie delight had only cheese on it and the onion and small tomato for all the sandwiches came in a small bag at the... More

There are 2 visitors centers at crater lake, one of them is here. A very good overlook with the only interpretive displays is here also. Visitors centers have tshirts and books too.

Being in the National Park, we found Rim Village too crowded for our liking. They do have a superb gift shop and sundries. Not much else to report.

The Rim Village has a cafe and gift shop, information center and the Crater Lake Lodge plus parking. You may have to wait for a parking space but people are constantly coming and going. The cafe and gift shop were packed the day we were there. The information center offers a variety of daily programs worth checking out. Crater Lake... More

This place was ridiculously expensive. It has a nice gift shop for some memory keep sake things, but as for the food, get ready to pay for cheap cafeteria food. A hotdog, nasty chicken and veggie with rice bowl (the kind of chicken that is really pressed rib meat) a soda, water, and (I blame myself for these) 3 snack... More

Crater Lake itself, is pretty to see. Yet, I strongly advise that you pack & bring your own food. It's a basic snack bar, with Bun style sandwiches . Choices of ham, turkey, or Roast beef with cheese. They looked yummy, but were about $9 for one. Side snacks, like single small brownies/cookies were $3. Fruit cup(not so fresh $6).... More
