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

Enjoyed the walk but was pushed inside due to a set of rain showers, so though we would get lunch. I ended up sharing a grilled chicken salad and a fruit cup with my husband. Everything seemed just too expensive! I did get postcards and pencils for our grand kids.

There are a number of places you can visit, eat, purchase items during your visit. There is plenty of parking and numerous paths to try from the village.

There is a large gift shop with Crater Lake stamped on everything from onesies to parkas. The cafeteria will give you a decent lunch, but parking around this facility is limited. The Lodge is farther down the road, but you have to book well in advance to get a room. Dinner reservations are almost as hard to get.

Gift shop fare. A little over priced, but better than getting sick from Lodge food. We bought parfaits here and powerade to recover from a night of being ill at the Lodge.
