Drop some Crater Lake knowledge on us.
Crater Lake is a must-see, spectacular 7,700 year old sunken caldera, now lake. A jewel of the park's system. Campground is large, well-run, but almost always packed. The weekend we were there was no exception...you'll always have neighbors. But people were quiet, and respectful. Even with reservation, you pick your spot on first come, first serve basis.
Even with a rezie, the spots are assigned upon arrival, so make it there early if you want to get a good site. We were in loop G and the sites were spacious. The mosquitos are relentless! Free showers in loop F and a restaurant.....
Glad I could enter campsite at 6p (Aug) but if you want to get away, get a backcountry permit. Expect a lot of RV's + families. Camping sites near the entrance of the park with a solid restaurant, Annie's, that provided a good breakfast to start off my 2nd day
History of Crater Lake National Park
Crater Lake has long attracted the wonder and admiration of people all over the world. Its depth of 1,943 feet (592 meters) makes it the deepest lake in the United States, and the ninth deepest in the world. Its fresh water is some of the clearest found anywhere in the world. The interaction of people with this place is traceable at least as far back as the eruption of Mount Mazama. Founded May 22, 1902, Crater Lake National Park seeks to preserve these natural and cultural resources.
