Hats off to the park people for doing a great job clearing up the snow. Please charge entrance fees during winter hours as well. The view from the ruin village is totally worth. Shut up and take my money!

Located just to the east (left) as one reaches the rim of Cater Lake, Rim Village consists of the Crater Lake Lodge and Dining Room, Rim Visitor Center hosting numerous ranger programs, Rim Village Café and Gift Shop that is very well stocked and the Sinnott Memorial Overlook. Despite an average of 44 feet (13.4m) of snow each winter, access... More

The gift shop was one of the nicest I've seen. Lots to choose from and decent prices. I spent two hours in there. Clean bathrooms too was a bonus!

This is a good starting point, then head to the West Rim drive. The first view of the Lake will be memorable. Try to get down to the Sinnott Overlook, there are displays that explain about the region. Lots of parking and easy access walkways.

The Rim Village provides the typical NPS services (food, Lodge, Gift Shop, picnic area, etc). RECOMMEND: the crater rim trail from the Gift Shop to the Lodge is great for viewing the lake as well as being able to access a special viewing area on the rim. Rangers host many talks in this viewing platform. You may want to visit... More

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...

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...
