Travel from Coos Bay to Crater Lake to ????

Jump to last reply

First trip to Oregon - 4 nights in Portland and then going to Coos Bay for 5 nights. We will be travelling from Coos Bay to Crater Lake on August 24. We will leave around 8:00 am from Coos Bay. We have mapped the drive along Hwy 42 to Hwy 138, and I envision leaving early and having lunch before entering the NP then arrive at the Park and drive the rim for views/walks.

1. Any suggestions for where to have lunch? Like healthy, local food.
2. When we enter the Park should we go East or West?
3. Should we try to spend the night in the CL area or is several hours there adequate?
4. If we stay, Crater Lake Lodge is not available, but we can stay at the Cabins at Mazama. Is this a good choice? Some people on the Forum seem to suggest Prospect Hotel.
5. We are mid-60s and reasonably active, but do not want to hike more than a couple of miles if we hike/walk. Are there some good walks? Which area?
6. Is the boat ride worthwhile?

We will have 5 nights once we leave CL before flying out of Portland. Our intent is to head toward Mt Hood area. Any suggestions on which route to take (East of Cascades for wine tasting vs West of Cascades for ___)? Where is a good place to stop for a couple of nights as we head back up toward Mt Hood?

I realize this is quite subjective depending on what we are looking for, but your thoughts would be appreciated. What we don't like to do is spend all day in the car.

Thanks,
Sylvia
