Additional Campsites

Camp in the Backcountry

Crater Lake National Park’s rugged volcanic landscape brings you amazing possibilities for backcountry wilderness explorations. In the summer, with a permit, you can camp at the park’s five designated backcountry campsites—Bybee Creek, Dutton Creek, Grouse Hill, Lightning Springs, and Red Cone Springs. Dispersed camping is also allowed with a permit.  

In winter, you can camp along the rim with a permit. You can explore open slopes, dense forests, and breathtaking views while skiing or snowshoeing on the park’s trails and unplowed roads.

Thirty-three miles of the Pacific Crest Trail pass through the park, offering views of the mountains and via an alternate trail, spectacular vistas of the lake.
