About Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon is the fifth oldest park in the United States and the only National Park in the state of Oregon. The National Park itself is 183,225 acres and offers pristine wilderness in old growth forests, plenty of wildlife, and the scenic beauty of its major attraction, Crater Lake.

The first known Native American people of this area were the Klamath people. This tribe witnessed the eruption and destruction of Mount Mazama, which formed Crater Lake almost 8,000 years ago. The first white men to visit the area, which was on June 12, 1853, were three gold prospectors who were searching for food came upon the lake. Discovery Point is named for them where they first viewed the lake.

A wealthy local named William Gladstone Steel devoted his life to the establishment of the park. Many of today's landmarks were named by Steel. Steel was able to get President Theodore Roosevelt to dedicate the area as a National Park on May 22, 1902.

Today, Crater Lake National Park receives over 400,000 visitors a year. The fresh water lake with its stunning deep blue hue is the major attraction in the park. Since the lake sits at the top of Mount Mazama in the Cascade Range, there are other landmarks in the park including Timber Crater, Union Peak, Mount Scott, and Crater Peak.

The lake itself is 1,943 feet deep which makes it the deepest lake in the United States. Crater Lake is considered to be the seventh deepest lake in the world. Amazinglye, the lake has no tributaries. It is re-filled entirely by snow run-off and annual rainfall. The area receives several hundred inches of snowfall each year, which is the major contributor of water into the lake.
