Perched at the crest of Oregon’s Cascade mountains, Crater Lake National Park’s typically sunny summers make June, July, and August ideal times to visit. Winters are long and snowy, with storms burying the park in 40-plus feet of snow per year. In the shoulder season – May, June, and October – you’ll find that sunny days alternate with periods of rain and snow.

Be prepared for changes. Park elevations range from around 4,500 feet to almost 9,000 feet, and depending on the season, the weather can swing from sunny and clear to heavy snow in just a few hours.

The National Weather Service provides up-to-date weather forecasts for the park.
