Awe-inspiring, unique, bedazzling and perfect. These are just a few words that have been used to describe Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon .
By all accounts and standards, it's one of the most enticing national parks in America . And unsurprisingly, there are plenty of things to do in Crater Lake National Park.
Created 7,700 years ago by the cataclysmic eruption and subsequent collapse of Mount Mazama, Crater Lake is now the epitome of tranquility. The volcano's violent explosion scattered ash across hundreds of thousands of square miles, leaving behind a deep, steep-walled caldera.
Snow and rain eventually filled up the crater, forming what is now appropriately known as Crater Lake.

Drive the Rim Drive
The star attraction in Crater Lake National Park is the Rim Drive. Encircling the entire lake, this 33-mile (53-kilometer) road is one of the greatest national park roads in the USA.
This lovely drive offers you the chance to see the lake from every possible angle. More than 30 pullouts and numerous trailheads line the road, inviting visitors to leave their cars—provided they aren't cycling the Rim Drive —and enjoy this extraordinary landscape and natural scenery.
Note that, because of heavy snowfall in winter, the Crater Lake Rim Drive closes on November 1 (or sooner in case of significant snowfall). Also depending on snow conditions, the West Rim Drive re-opens sometime between mid-May and late-June while the East Rim Drive opens again between mid- and late-June.
Updated information on road conditions and closures is always available on the park's website .
Almost all major Crater Lake National Park attractions lie on or near the Rim Drive. Although there are other places of interest in other areas of the park, Crater Lake itself is the obvious star of the show. And the best way to see it is by driving the Crater Lake Rim Drive.
