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

Spent a great time with my family going around the lake to its different sites. Interesting video introduction at the ranger station. Cleanest and clearest fresh water lake in the world.

It's all good,... More

If you are driving up to Crater Lake from the south (Medford), a quick stop at the natural bridge and gorge are a must. These two natural phenomna are incredible. Watch for the signs towards the top of the canyon becuase they come up on you quickly. The hiking paths are paved and relatively level. The power of the river... More
