On the drive to Crater Lake National Park, I stopped at one of the overlooks of the Rogue River Gorge. It is quite scenic to see the rushing water.

This is located just off Highway 62 across the road from Union Creek Resort and about 20 miles from Crater Lake. There is no charge to park your vehicle, and it is an easy hike along the gorge with amazing views along the trail. The waterfall at the upper end of the gorge is powerful and a great place to...

Spent an entire day driving around the lake. The cost of entering the park was cheap for what you get. This place is amazing. If you want a nice place to go outdoors this is a must. I am planning to go camping at the well maintained campsite. The day we were their it was raining off and on. It... More

First, I would like to note that the Rogue River Gorge is not really located in Crater Lake area but nearby in Prospect Oregon. Not sure why the river and gorge are listed together with Crater Lake reviews. The Rogue River Gorge is an interpretive area with 1/2 mile paved trail that takes you to different view points to see... More

Had a walk around the top and were disheartened because we couldn't see anything so we started to drive back, just as we were about to go passed the road thats closed... More

The river starts on Hwy 62 a little more than an hours drive from I-5. The best views of its beginning are past Becky's pies. Pull off into one of the camp grounds to get a great view of the gorge. There are wonderful views from all of the paths along the edge. Then travel down river past Becky's to... More
