Whoa! and Awesome! will likely be the first words out of your mouths at your initial sighting of Crater Lake, where impossibly blue, iridescent waters are some of the most pristine and pollutant-free in North America. The lake, however, is just one of countless natural wonders in Crater Lake National Park, where majestic mountains, quiet trails, and rushing rivers offer the perfect playground for your Oregon adventure.
- Bike the rim of an extinct volcano
- Hike secluded trails beneath forests of pine, hemlock, and red fir
- Take in an eagle-eye view of the lake and Wizard Island from Watchman’s lookout
- Marvel at the “Old Man” of Crater Lake – a mountain hemlock log that’s been floating upright in the lake for 100+ years!
- Raft an exhilarating stretch of the world-famous Rogue River
- Cruise the perimeter of the lake by boat alongside an Interpretive Ranger
- Top off the day with a freshly baked Rogue Valley berry pie – à la mode, of course!
It was like having your parents or a staff along on the trip - every time you needed something they already had it ready for you.
