...took us to Crater Lake National Park. This was the first time we used our America the Beautiful Pass. We just had to stop long enough to accept a park map and info guide from the ranger and we were off to the rim. Towing a 5th wheel behind us was at times a bit hairy on the twisty mountain road. We discovered that the parking lots at the viewpoints are not 5th wheel friendly. We found a large enough turn-out that we could park in across from The Watchman viewpoint. Oh my goodness...what a beautiful lake. The shade of blue is stunning. The turquoise of the shallows along the shore, amazing.

Our next stop along the West Rim was Rim Village where they have actual RV parking (maybe 8 stalls, many of which were occupied by cars). The village has a cafe and gift shop, but there are many paved paths to various viewpoints that offer a different perspective of the lake and Wizard Island.

According to the map there are a few campgrounds within the park, some of which have RV sites with water and electrical hookups. Might be worth another trip to camp and explore the park further.
