Getting to Crater Lake National Park
Crater Lake National Park is located in the Southern Cascades of the state of Oregon. It is fairly remote, the nearest town of size being the city of Medford, over an hours drive away.
The south entrance to Crater Lake is the only one open year round. From I-5 and Medford, follow OR-62 northeast 70 miles to the park. In the summer, access to the park is possible via OR-138 to the north entrance.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of Rim Village Visitor Center in Crater Lake. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Crater Lake Trail Map.
