CRATER LAKE, OREGON – Based on the status of nearby fires, local forecasts with cooler temperatures and some precipitation, and long-range projections for fire behavior, Crater Lake National Park lifted the Level 1 Evacuation Notification on Wednesday, September 23, 2020. The park will continue to monitor conditions and will reissue any evacuation notifications if needed.
Fall can be a beautiful time to enjoy Crater Lake National Park. All trails are currently open as well as all park entrances. Rim Village Café and Gifts is open daily. Mazama Campground and Camper Store are open through the weekend but are scheduled to close for the season on Monday, September 28. Crater Lake Lodge will remain open for guests until Monday, October 12, 2020. All roads within the park are open except for the Pinnacles Road which has been closed due to the threat of falling trees. Pinnacles Road will be reassessed later this week for possible reopening.
Please be aware that effective September 8, 2020 the park implemented a complete ban on all wood and charcoal fires, and the ban is still in effect. Wood and charcoal fires are not permitted in any location throughout the park. This regulation is being strictly enforced. For more information, please go to 2020 fire ban.
