You are sure to find unique Christmas ornaments, hand woven scarves and hats as well as jewelry, greeting cards and much, much more.

Everyone is cordially invited to attend the reception on opening day, Sunday, November 5th from 12:00 to 4:00. Come savor tasty holiday treats and meet several of the artists.

Ranger-Led Snowshoe Walks

December 03, 2017 1:00pm–3:00pm

Crater Lake National Park is pleased to announce that our popular ranger-guided snowshoe walks will start on Friday, November 24 and will be offered every Saturday and Sunday (and on most holidays) through April 29, 2018.  Walks will also be offered daily from December 16 through January 1.

Crater Lake is one of the snowiest inhabited places in America, receiving an average of 43 feet of snow per year.  Ranger-led snowshoe walks are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how plants, animals, and people survive the long winter.

The walks start at 1:00 pm, last two hours, and cover 1-2 miles of moderate-to-strenuous terrain.  They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests and meadows along the rim of Crater Lake.

No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary.  Snowshoes are provided free of charge, and there is no cost for the tour (apart from the park entrance fee of $10 per car).   Participants should be at least 8 years old and come prepared with warm clothing and water-resistant footwear.

Space on each tour is limited, and advance reservations are required.  For more information and to sign up, call the park’s visitor center at 541-594-3100.  The visitor center is open daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm except on December 25.  Organized groups (such as scout troops, hiking clubs, and church groups) may be able to arrange for a separate tour. 

Crater Lake National Park is open year-round, 24 hours a day.  The park’s north entrance and Rim Drive are closed to cars in the winter, but the west and south entrances are plowed daily and are open to automobiles throughout the year.  There is no winter lodging in the park, however the Rim Village Café & Gift Shop is open daily except on November 23 and December 25.  Spectacular views of Crater Lake can be enjoyed at Rim Village during periods of clear weather. 

Klamath Chorale: Thank Heaven for Christmas

December 03, 2017 2:00pm–4:00pm
