Crater Lake is located in Southern Oregon in the Cascade Mountain range. It lies inside a caldera, or volcanic basin, created when Mount Mazama collapsed almost 8000 years ago following a large eruption. At 1943 feet deep it is the deepest lake in America.
Crater Lake is immeasurably beautiful and has inspired people for thousands of years. Feast your eyes upon a deep, pure lake so blue in colour you will scarcely believe your eyes. The surrounding cliffs are almost two thousand feet high along with two picturesque islands and a violent volcanic past. From atop the crater you can gaze over the lake, then amble down and jump aboard a small boat that will take you on a cruise around Wizard Island.
