The park's newspaper and visitor guide, Crater Lake Reflections, is the best source of information for planning a trip to the park. It's published twice a year. (The summer/fall edition typically comes out in early June; the winter/spring edition usually arrives in early December.)
Visiting between July and October? Download the summer/fall edition to learn about hiking trails, the Rim Drive, and other park attractions. (If you'd prefer a hard copy, we can send you one. Contact us using the link at the bottom of this page.)
Visiting between November and April? Download the winter/spring edition for information on ranger-led snowshoe tours, ski trails, and winter closures. (If you'd prefer a hard copy, we can send you one. Contact us using the link at the bottom of this page.)
May & June
Arriving in May or June? Unfortunately, neither edition of the park newspaper will be very helpful. Instead, read our overview of visiting in May and June.
