I was really looking forward to going to dinner at Cater Lake Lodge after a four night camping trip. This dinner out was the one night we were cooking over the campfire and it was also my birthday dinner. The evening started well. We had dinner reservations but, arrived early to enjoy a cocktail on the porch. The power went... More

While doing some work in the Oregon area I had the pleasure of spending several days at the Cater Lake Lodge. From the moment you enter the park you know you made the right decision to go there. The natural beauty of the park just enhances the beauty of the lodge itself. The lodge was constructed in 1915. It is... More

This is a beautiful rustic old lodge that we believe that this was also built in the 1930's by the shovel ready ccc camps of the depression era . Crater lake can be seen down the hill in the distance. The lake is not very easy to get down to enjoy. It is actually a trek to get to. The... More

This lodge was a great place to stay. We had a wonderful room overlooking the lake. We opened our windows at night for the cool air. The rooms were nice, clean and well kept. We loved the rustic feel of the lodge. The breakfast was outstanding in the dining room.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Crater Lake. The views are stunning. We had a top floor room overlooking the lake with window seat to hang out on. The rooms are small and a little dated but very well maintained. You do need to ask for a hair dryer at the front desk, and there is a... More

The location is obviously the best part of the lodge. It is simple and quite with great views from the dining room and huge porch overlooking the lake. If you want a lake view you have to book far in advance. Restaurant was a little pricy but the food was good. I booked the room over 6 months before my... More

We stayed in the Crater-Lake-Lodge in Mid-May, when the North-Entrance was still closed, because of the high snow. The hotel has an exposed position and the public rooms with the sitting areas at the fireplaces are very cozy. But our room with a marvellous lake-view was quite small, sparsely furnished and without any convenience – even a hairdryer was missing.... More

The historic Crater Lake Lodge is a perfect example of why we usually stay in the NP cabins when we visit National Parks in the U.S. The lodge is beautiful inside and out with a perfect perch right on the edge of the lake but the room left a bit to be desired. It was very hot in southern Oregon... More

Having had a bad experience at a National Park Lodge on a previous trip we approached this Lodge with low expectations. En route we found a copy of The Complete Guide to the National Park Lodges, 7th Edition, which is a wonderful guide to both the lodges and the rooms to choose. Armed with this we knew to ask for...

We have stayed at a number of different National Park lodges and naturally they tend to rely heavily on their premier locations at the expense, sometimes, of facilities. Crater Lake Lodge is definitely, in our opinion, one of the better available and not just based on its unsurpassed location on the crater rim. The public rooms are endowed with a... More
