Crater Lake

Only two hours away from Seven Feathers Casino Resort this would be a wonderful day trip

Crater Lake

This breath-taking blue lake located at the crown of the Cascade Mountains lives up to its nickname “blue majesty”. Crater Lake is famous for its beautiful blue water that comes only from rain and melted snow, meaning there is no sediment or mineral deposits, keeping it clean, clear and vibrant!

With approximately 43 inches of snow each year, Crater Lake is known as one of the snowiest places in the United States – the parks winter season extends from November to April but visitors are warned that snow typically lingers until May to June. Certain areas and activities do close during the winter months but there are still many options to have fun in the snow and even the indoors! Take glimpses of the lake from the Steel Visitor Center or the observation room at the Rim Village.

When the snow finally does clear up there are countless activities and acres to explore. The lake does have designated swimming areas, but no matter how warm it may be outside, this water stays cold. The park has four forest zones ready to be explored; ponderosa pine forest, lodgepole pine forest, mountain hemlocks zone and whitebark pines zone (each named after its dominant tree species). With plenty of trails this hilly landscape is a perfect place to put your mountain biking skills to the test!

Only two hours away from Seven Feathers Casino Resort this would be a wonderful day trip surrounded by stunning views and endless activity. For more information on Crater Lake and the activities available, please visit: click here
