Alerts & Conditions

Most roads, trails, and facilities are currently open. However, a few closures and restrictions are in effect.


All park roads are currently open 24 hours a day.

Weather & Visibility
During storms, the lake is sometimes hidden by clouds. In August, the lake is typically invisible about 5% of the time. To find out if it's visible right now, view our webcam at Rim Village. The National Weather Service provides the most accurate weather forecast for the park.

Most facilities are fully open for the summer. Camping in the park, however, is currently somewhat limited. Part of Mazama Campground is temporarily closed for a hazard tree removal proejct. Visit our publications page to download a list of lodging and camping options outside the park. Camping in pullouts and parking lots is prohibited.

Two backcountry campsites are currently closed. The Dutton Creek and Red Cone campsites, both located along the Pacific Crest Trail, are closed because of standing dead trees that could pose a hazard to campers.

Hiking Trails
The Godfrey Glen Trail is closed due to a damaged bridge.
