Visit the pristine waters of the deepest lake in the USA.

Crater Lake National Park is located in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon. The gorgeous Crater Lake was formed by the now-collapsed volcano, Mount Mazama. Wizard Island is a cinder cone near the western edge of the lake. The Rim Drive is a road surrounding the lake that offers views of the park’s volcanic formations. The park’s numerous trails include Sun Notch, and views of the Phantom Ship, a small island.

Oregon's Crater Lake inspires all. Native Americans witnessed its formation 7,700 years ago, when a violent eruption triggered the peak's collapse. The lake continues to remain with regular rain and snow. At 1,943 feet deep, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States, and the 9th deepest in the world. Landscape photographers and sightseers will fall in love with the pristine blue water. It is set against a stunning backdrop among the Cascade mountain range.

Guests are encouraged to catch fish in the lake since they are not native to Crater Lake. You don't have to have a current fishing license, and you can catch as many fish as you like. They only ask that you use artificial lures. You will be able to find rainbow trout and salmon as you fish from the shoreline. As you hike through the trails, birds you may see include ravens, Clark's nutcracker, gray jay, dark-eyed junco, and mountain chickadee. Enjoy the serenity of Crater Lake National Park with your friends and family.
