Typical in-park facility

Difficult to find parking as is any lodge in a national park. Food decent. Souvenir ready and waiting for your purchases.

This village has limited parking and is very congested. Not a good place for larger vehicles. There is a small gift shop and café and restrooms here at Rim Village. There is also amazing views of Crater Lake as well. The trolly stop is here for those taking the Trolly Tour. The lodge is at Rim Village as well.

Good place to stop for supplies for emergencies...Staff were rather unattentive and seemed bored..Yawning and no eye contact..Expect to pay 4 dollars for an hour of lousy WIFI

This is a nice stop to get a warm snack, buy souvenirs, and use the restroom. The view was nice too! There were tour groups there when we visited and most of the hot foods were sold out - we purchased their last hotdog!

A must prior to hiking or driving around the park this is the place to visit. Lunch at the lodge or a quick update about the park from a park ranger. The museum is perfect for learning about the creation of Crater Lake. The rangers are very friendly and professional. For our family it was a morning well spent.

The Crater Lake Lodge is impressive, the gift shop is big, the "cafe" isn't much. Good restrooms. You can find equal or better views from many other places in the park.

Everything you need here refreshments, general store and restaurant. There is also a gas station but recommend filling up in the closest town before going to park.

There is plenty of parking at Rim Village, but on a holiday weekend, it still can be hard to secure a spot. There are several buildings and amenities here, but the views here are the most notable. Crater Lake is so blue! The rim area here is paved, so it's an easy walk that still gets you lots of beautiful... More

Its located at the top of the park. This is where the visitors center with dining and gift shop are, where you catch the trolley bus tour for a narrated ride around the rim by a US Park Ranger, where the the lodge is and also some scenic overlooks. It also is where some trailheads are for hiking. If you... More

The view from the deck of the lodge is unmatched. Plan to sit awhile in a wooden rocking chair while nursing a tasty hot chocolate after taking a rigorous hike.
