Though the Rim Village does have a cafe and some souvenirs/knick knacks, it's really not a necessary area to see.

Plenty of parking, nice paved walkway on the rim, visitors center, as well as a cafe, gift shop, restrooms and such. Make sure to checkout the lodge as well.

Great gift shop but as the title suggests, they were sold out of some of their big display items. Loved the hand-wrapped sandwiches at the canteen, great on-the-go option for hiking and boating and making the best of your day.

The Rim village is the key location to start, stop or meet up with others in Crater Lake. The bookstore has nice selection of merchandise and NPS keepsakes.

Started our tour of Crater Lake NP here. Good place to stop with ample parking and a good visitors store. Found nice memorabilia and cards etc. Worth a stop.

And yes, you can find food here either at the Cafe or in the Lodge. And the gift shop is large (although pricey). But view on the Crater Lake from here are breathtaking.

Both summer and winder there is lots to see. From the main lodge, to the retail store down the road to the Cafe. The Village gives you great viewing points to see the lake.

The gift shop here has a good selection of items...from standard tourist stuff to some interesting, unusual books and wild huckleberry taffy! Definitely worth a stop and a few purchases.

Stopped here to see if there were any souvenirs worth buying and found quite a few that were both special and inexpensive. A must stop in the park
