Crater Lake National Park: Mazama Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On a plateau of lodgepole pines above the picturesque, deeply eroded drainage of Annie Creek sits this campground at the gateway to Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lake was formed some 7,700 years ago when the ancient volcano Mount Mazama collapsed and filled with water to form the deepest lake in the United States and one of the clearest lakes in the world. The 33-mile Rim Drive explores the crater, with stops for hikes, sightseeing, and photography. The lake’s color explores uncommon shades of blue. From camp, the Annie Creek Trail descends to the wildflower-spangled banks of Annie Creek. Other park trails top the caldera peaks for panoramic views of the caldera, lake, and Cascades. A narrated boat tour (a fee attraction) leaves from Cleetwood Cove. To board the boat, you must hike 1.1 miles and descend 700 feet in elevation from the rim trailhead to the cove."
