How to fit Crater Lake into our trip...help!

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling to Oregon in late July with my husband and 10 and 8 yo children. I really wanted to go to Crater Lake, but it turns out there is absolutely no lodging for the dates I'm looking at inside the park. Nor is there any lodging (from what I can tell) close by. I've looked at the lodgings the NPS recommends outside the park, like Diamond Lake and Prospect - they are also all booked, or not suitable for our family (ie, not enough beds, or way too many beds such that I would be vastly overpaying). I've also searched VRBO, airbnb, homeaway, etc.

We will be coming up from Ashland, and headed next to the coast for the Oregon Dunes. We could, I suppose, daytrip from Ashland, or I can find rooms in Roseburg (and which is on the way to the Oregon Dunes), both of which seem to be about 1.5 hours away from Crater Lake. Either way, though, I'm only looking at around one day inside Crater Lake. I was hoping to have spent 2-3 days there, but my OH will flip at the idea of multiple 1.5 hour long each way daytrips.

So - is 1 day enough for Crater Lake? Or should I just write this part of Oregon off our vacation, and hope we make it back to the Pacific Northwest some other time? And does anyone have any lodging suggestions or thoughts? We - okay, I - are not campers, so the campgrounds are out. Any and all feedback is much appreciated.
