Crater Lake and Campground


The lake at Crater Mountain lies at the top of a shield volcano. Because the summit area has been glaciated, some believe the lake is also glacial in nature. Although there have been speculations of their similarities, the much larger Crater Lake (in Oregon) is a caldera that was formed by the collapse of a composite volcano. No evidence of collapse has yet been at found at this site’s summit. This scenic campground has a single loop near the deep blue lake. Larger travel trailers and RVs are not recommended.
