Crater Lake Lodge offers the ambiance of an historic national park lodge but with the sparkle and accouterments of a more modern facility. The lodge opened in 1915 but fell into disrepair, leaving the National Park Service to consider its demolition during the 1980s when it closed. Public outcry (especially from Oregonians) resulted in a $15 million federal appropriation that paid for tearing apart and rebuilding the lodge that subsequently reopened in 1995.

Truly a grand northwest lodge, the historic 71-room Crater Lake Lodge originally opened in 1915 and is located on the edge of the caldera overlooking Crater Lake.

The lodge was reopened after extensive renovation in 1995 and offers an atmosphere reminiscent of the 1920s and immerses visitors in its rustic charm.

A sense of awe comes over you as you enter through the main entrance and view the boldly stated fireplace in the Great Hall. Each room provides the expected hotel standards of comfort, privacy and service. Immerse yourself in the history that surrounds you by visiting the Exhibit Room just off the lobby. The Crater Lake Lodge dining room overlooks the lake and serves the finest northwest regional cuisine.

The lodge is open from late May to mid-October.
