Klamath Falls Oregon Area Guide
Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States reaching 1,943 feet below sea level and the ninth deepest lake in the world. Crater Lake is a volcanic caldera which means a hole made by the collapse of a volcano. It is a place of immeasurable beauty, and an outstanding outdoor laboratory and classroom. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past.
