Haze from a massive forest fire down south made hiking less than ideal and turned the lake's water into a pale reflection. Like many here, I must return someday.

This is definitely the most beautiful National Park I visited so far. Not too big, not too small, beautiful like a post card. I hope to go back sometimes during the month of August to be able to hike every peak.

Just passing through, hiked a little around visitor center. I'd like to explore a little more when I get out that way again.

First time to Crater Lake, and it was spectacular to see. Snow still covered much of the banks of the lake, and the road was only open halfway around the lake. We put on our crampons and climbed up to the Watchmen Tower, which was another awesome view and fun to do!! Great place to see all around.

Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2005


Date approximate. Singing this one because I hiked down to Cleetwood Cove and touched the waters of Crater Lake, which I think counts as a sort of "reverse summit" accomplishment.

gimpilatorImpressive Lake  Sucess!


The first time was with my father in the spring and the snow was 20+ feet high above the sides of the road. I returned in 2016 on a solo trip and was able to hike, Llao Rock, Mount Scott, Dutton Cliff, Garfield Peak, Dyar Rock, Applegate Peak, Hillman Peak, and The Watchman in less than 24 hours including camping time.

Hiked Garfield Peak - "trail closed" but snow supportable. Tried Crater Peak but no tracks to mark route on snow. The only trail without snow was Cleetwood Cove!

This is a great park. I camped for free on the PCT, and got a boat ride to wizard Island. Did swimming and hiking, cool place to visit, although you run out of things to do once your do everything...

Day hiked the rim in snowshoes. It seemed as though the entire lake was frozen over!!

I've climbed about a half-dozen peaks in the park during 2 or 3 visits over the years. The lake is spectacularly beautiful.

lcarreauMemorable experience...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 29, 1981


The first time I did it solo and got a great photo of Theilsen to
the north. A Park Ranger helped me out in getting my car started up again, after it had stalled in front of the VC. I just did the normal trails to the north. In May 2003, I came in from the south with my wife. A sign had said the road was closed, but it turned
out everything was open. I remember seeing Mount Shasta and
Mount McLaughlin from the road going up to the lake, so it was
a clear day. My wife and I just played around in a snowbank,
looked down at the lake and dreamed.

Often visited with my family when we lived out west. I wondered what it might be like 1,000 feet below the surface in the crater's black, cold waters. I also had a great fondness for Wizard Island. Have spent a fair amount of time hiking and exploring the area.

Did tourist trails as a kid and was very impressed. I had a new Instamatic camera and played photographer.
