Happenings- Crater Lake National Park Tips!


I had the opportunity to visit Crater Lake this summer, it is a short drive from the Eugene/Springfield area, about 2.5 hours and well worth it!

It is Oregon's only National Park and with a variety of accommodations it is worth the trip for a stay of at least 2-4 days. More than that if you have a family that REALLY enjoys outdoor activities.

Accommodations: Crater Lake Lodge, prices start at $150+/night, it is worth the upgraded cost to stay on the 3rd floor (this level has the best views-ask for lake view!). If you enjoy camping you can stay at Lost Creek Campground (16 sites) or Mazama Village (200+ sites). I prefer Lost Creek as it is more remote/less people. Also, Mazama Village has a motor cabin lodge option with about 40 rooms. Planning ahead for hotel/cabin lodging is imperative, up to 1 year in advance.

I will keep information coming, please check back!
