The park's visitor guide, Crater Lake Reflections, is is the best source of information for planning a visit. It is published twice a year. The summer/fall edition typically comes out in early June; the winter/spring edition typically arrives in early December. Click on the links below to download low-resolution PDFs of current and past editions. (The past summer/fall editions are still interesting to read for the articles on scientific research and park history on pages 6 & 7). If you'd like to receive a paper copy of Reflections through the mail, click on "Contact Us" at the bottom left of the page.
