Crater Lake National Park Travel Guide
All the overlooks along Rim Drive are accessible to those with impaired mobility, as are Crater Lake Lodge, the facilities at Rim Village, and Steel Information Center. A half-dozen accessible campsites are available at Mazama Campground.
Park Fees and Permits
Admission to the park is $15 per vehicle, good for seven days. For all overnight trips, backcountry campers and hikers must obtain a free wilderness permit at Canfield Ranger Station, which is at the park headquarters adjacent to Steel Visitor Center and open daily from 8 to 5.
Crater Lake National Park is open 24 hours a day year-round; however, snow closes most park roadways October through June. Lodging and dining facilities usually are open from late May to mid-October. The park is in the Pacific time zone.
The Mazama Camper Store near the park's Annie Spring entrance station and Rim Village Gift Shop have ATMs. Look for banks in nearby towns.
