After visiting so many national park visitor centers, we expected this to be more upscale but with all the snow they get and the short summer they enjoy, it must be difficult to keep buildings maintained.

I love Rim Village. There is a snack shop with just about anything you'd like. Great coffee, too. Mostly, though, I love the gift shop. There are many books, regional artist's works, plus all of the other things you'd expect to see. . . post cards, collectibles, jewelry, t-shirts, and snacks.

We stopped at the Lodge for Lunch and had about a 30 to 45 minute wait time, this was July 26th, 2014. It wasn't bad since you just go outside and they have a line of rocking chairs that overlook the lake and it is gorgeous. Not too shabby having a glass of wine on the rim of a volcano....lol... More

There were all sorts of things to look at here as well as a little cafe. We were able to find gifts for friends and family as well as a few trinkets for ourselves.The prices were reasonable and they were offering a blanket half off if you spent over $50.00 - it isn't hard to spend that much- so I...

We visited in Mid May 2014. We couldn't believe all the snow there. They had some great souveniers at the Village store.

This was the closest place for any food and drink. The food in the small cafeteria in the gift shop was good, fresh, and quick. The gift shop was large and had a nice selection of souvenirs. The staff and rangers in the ranger station were knowledgeable and helpful. There is quite a long paved walkway from which to view... More

Nice lodge and gift shop area. Great visitors center before you get to the village. The Discovery Trail starts at the Village. Lodge is located here. Good for relaxing in the lobby or porch.

There is a lodge/restaurant, a separate giftshop/cafe, a bookstore. Prices are high. Best bet, get an evening drink in the lodge and sit in a lounge chair overlooking the lake. This is heaven.

First, the good. The focal point of the Rim Village at Crater Lake National Park is the historic lodge, long a beautiful but crumbling edifice, now the restored pride of the National Park System. At least stop for a quick rock in the chairs on the veranda and a look at the historical display in the annex hall. The second... More
