The park is open. For information on the weather, trails and roads can be found on the National Park Service website:

Due to COVID-19, the park is operating with significantly fewer staff this year. Please be patient and kind.

  • Crowding is occurring at popular trails, parking lots and indoor facilities — bring your face covering.
  • Excessive trash has become a problem. Pack out everything you bring.
  • Stay on all marked paths and trails.
  • Many facilities, including restrooms, are closed.
  • The lake can only be accessed at Cleetwood Cove Trail.
  • Watercraft — including inflatable rafts and SUPs — and off-leash dogs are not allowed.
  • If visitors don’t follow posted rules and regulations, facilities and popular sites may close.

Please enjoy this natural wonder responsibly. Your cooperation will allow us to keep Crater Lake open and its unique resources undamaged for current and future generations.
