Crater Lake National Park & Rim Visitor Center
Seventy-seven hundred years ago, the soufflé-like collapse of Mt. Mazama, a composite volcano that stood at 12,000 feet, left a caldera that filled up with water and snow melt over a few centuries to form Crater Lake. Crater Lake is the deepest fresh water lake (1,958 ft.) in the continental U.S. Since the collapse, there have been several eruptions that have partially filled the lake (erupted under water) and one that broke the surface, Wizard Island. Stop by the Steel Visitor Center for information to explore this 183,225 acre Park.
