People tend to head for Rim Village, just because it's the only place on Rim Road that offers anything to eat. Of course, the lodge is also there, if you opt to stay there. There is a reasonable sized gift shop with the usual "made in China" items. Most notably, there are great views of the lake from the area... More

We thought there would be a lot more to do as we were stuck camping in the snow and rain in September. We went to the cafe and were shocked at the outrageous high prices ($9 a sandwich for the meat ones with NOTHING else with them). Other than that there is a penny pressing machine and a good size...

Thought this would have a lot of extra's, but not really. As for any NP gift shop this has the same as everything else. There is a cafeteria in the building and it does serve hamburgers, hotdogs, fries, and other cafeteria food.

At the rim village you'll find virtually everything you need for an enjoyable visit to Crater Lake. My suggestion is to stop at the Visitor's Center first. It is located halfway between the large store/cafe and the Crater Lake Lodge. There is always a park ranger on hand who can answer any questions you may have plus a decent selection... More

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
