Crater Lake OR

Jump to last reply

We are driving from San Francisco, North to Vancouver at the end of February & March 2013. I will be in Medford and Portland the first week in March 2013 and was wondering if the conditions will allow us to visit Crater Lake, that time of year?

I have looked at a few websites that state Highway 84 is open year round but will that give me a vantage point to see the lake?

I will be driving a mid size SUV, however I have not driven before with snow chains and do not wish to do so.

Could you also let me know the best place to set out on the journey? Unfortunately we will not be able to do any hiking on this trip, so It will only be a brief stop this time round. Our trip North includes San Francisco - Medford (1night) - Portland (3 nights) then onto Seattle.

This is my first post, so if I have missed anything let me know.
