Crater Lake

The centerpiece of Crater Lake National Park is the six mile wide Crater Lake, which lies in the collapsed caldera of a volcano inside Mount Mazama. The lake was formed when the mountain collapsed from an eruption approximately 7,700 years ago. Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and varies between the 7th and 9th deepest in the world, depending on whether average or maximum depth is measured. Crater Lake is filled solely from snow melt; there are no connecting rivers or streams giving the lake its famous clear blue waters.
