As part of a loop through Oregon, we will be spending a day at Crater Lake at the end of June, and since we have planned this at the last minute, lodging in the park is not available. We will be going on to Bend from there. Starting the day in Medford, then touring the lake--is Bend too far a destination for the night? If it is, any suggestions for lodging on Hwy. 97 near Crater Lake?
