Southern Oregon is home to Crater Lake, Oregon's only national park, showcasing America's deepest and bluest lake. But that's only the beginning. It is also the stage for hair-raising white-water adventures and awesome downhill and cross-country skiing. Southern Oregon features two spectacular mountain ranges, a gold-mining era boom town, a wildlife safari park, caves for the adventurous explorer, Klamath Lake, Oregon's largest natural body of water and Ashland's Shakespearean Festival. The area has six wildlife refuges, four national forests and two national monuments, all of which provide the opportunity for one-day trips or extended exploration. Year round access to Crater Lake is provided by Highway 62. In the winter, Nordic equipment rentals are available and park services rangers lead weekend snow shoeing expeditions. In the summer, the 33-mile rim drive leads to stunning views, abundant hiking trails and campsites. The rugged and scenic Oregon coast is less than a half day drive away.
