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

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

The Rim Village is just like 1970's motorway services, car parks, poor cafe and gift shop, nothing else. I actually got an upset from eating the Italian sandwich bought from the cafe.

Beautiful scenery and hiking. There are so many viewpoints to stop at and appreciate the different views. Terrible food and seating at Rim Village Cafe

The drive to the rim of Crater Lake takes about 15 minutes from the pay station at Annie Creek. Along with historical buildings are resources for visitors. At the Rim Village Cafe and Gift Shop, visitors will find self serve beverages and pick-and-go prepared foods. There is nearby seating inside, outside, and upstairs. The connected gift shop is larger than... More

Not much here, but a small gift shop and restaurant. I advise you pack in your own food because the prices are a bit high.
