Crater Lake is worth the trip and there is some great hiking - the Mount Garfield trail offers amazing views and I highly recommend it. Visit in fall and you may very well be all alone up there in the clouds!

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Beautiful. A fabulous natural wonder even with a foot of snow on the ground. The cafe and gift shop has shortened hours during late fall and winter. The lodge is shut after mid-October. The rim roads were closed due to the snow but it was still worth the drive!!!!

“breathtaking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Went the first part of November and the roads were plowed and it was very easy to see the breathtaking view of the natural formed beauty. The staff/park rangers were full of helpful information that made this attraction move impressive. Little disappointed that we were unable to to travel around the whole lake, but due to the weather I understood the safety concern that the park had. The contrast of the green trees, white snow and blue lake make the view unforgettable. Highly recommend seeing this at least 1 in your life.

“Crater Lake National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is, out of many national parks that I have visited, I consider Crater Lake a must see. The natural beauty and pristine condition of this park is without compare. While there you have to do the boat trip on the lake. And don't let the walk down the trail put you off. The climb back up is not bad at all. The accomodations for hotel rooms must be made well in advance if you intend to stay in the park. However there are several small towns close by where you can get great rooms at reasonable prices. I did some camping in the park and loved it all. Go prepared to get out of your car and out of your skin and do some walking and really enjoy the park and all it has to offer. One of my favorite palces.

A place you must put on your "bucket"list. If possible visit in September, less crowds & kids. Make sure you go out at night & look up at the sky, so many stars & if you're lucky the Milky Way over the Lake. If staying at the Lodge ask for a room on the Lake side,you'll be glad you did.
