Private boats or flotation devices are not allowed on Crater Lake. Only interpretive boat tours and research vessels are permitted. Crater Lake is preserved as a scenic and scientific wonder, not as a recreational lake.


You can scuba dive though:

But you could go kayaking at Lost Creek Lake - which is not far away from Crater Lake. I didnt know it existed until a couple of weeks ago- drove by on the way to Crater Lake and its really beautiful- would love to go back and do some exploring.

Diamond Lake (north) and Klamath Lake (south) are not too far away, and have no restrictions that I am aware of.
