Crater Lake National Park
The Wood House | Natural Bridge | Crater Lake | The Gorge | Beckie's Cafe
Almost 8,000 years ago, an 11,000' volcano called Mt. Mazama collapsed into itself in a tremendous volcanic eruption, leaving a 3,000' crater that would become Crater Lake. An awe-inspiring national treasure, Crater Lake National Park became the country's fifth national park in 1902. Crater Lake National Park is a must-see destination in Southern Oregon, but to really get the Oregon experience, we’ve created a tour that will turn this iconic photo op hot spot into an experience of a lifetime.

ROGUE RIVER GORGE
On the return trip from Crater Lake, we will stop at the spectacular Rogue River Gorge for a walk along a quarter-mile loop with views of a mighty section of the Rogue River. The 500' gorge formed as the lava tube constraining the river eroded away. The entire river is forced into the narrow and steep constraints of the lava tube's remnants, resulting in plummeting waterfalls and whirlpools.
