“Absolutely gorgeous!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

While you are probably going to have to drive out of your way to get to Crater Lake, it is definitely something that you want to do. It is absolutely gorgeous to see.....so many colors and beautiful views. I think it is even prettier than Yellowstone or Yosemite. I highly recommend stopping and seeing it. Breathtaking!

“A can't miss while visiting Oregon!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My family visited while vacationing. The drive up the mountain was beautiful and the lake was worth every curve we went around to get there!

“Breathtaking magnificence! Do not miss this!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This was the highlight of our 17 day road trip in Oregon and northern California. First time visit to Crater Lake. It was spectacular! We were there about a week after they opened the west rim road in the middle of May. There was snow plowed everywhere. It was a beautiful sight! It is stunning beyond words.This is one of the most beautiful National Parks we have seen in the USA. It exceeded all our expectations. The lake has a shade of blue that I have never seen. Each scenic overlook along the drive surpassed the previous one. I was in a state of complete awe.

“Still 20 feet of snow along the road”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Spectacular attraction. Visited in late May and there was still 20 feet of snow in some places along the road but the road was clear and dry. Cost $5 entrance fee on motorcycle.

“Majestic”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We just visited Crater Lake National Park in May 2014. They had just opened the North end of the rim an hour before we got there because of snow. We never expected the beauty. It was strange going from wearing shorts and sandals and as we drove up it kept getting colder and suddenly there was a lot of snow. Make sure you dress accordingly. The View at Crater Lake lodge was amazing. It is definitely worth the drive.
