The DEEPEST Lake In The US

Something about a tranquil lake warms our hearts and induces a sense of calm.

A lake is a body of water surrounded by land and  may be open or closed.

All freshwater lakes are open, meaning water exits by an outlet like a river.

Water only exits closed lakes by evaporation and  often become saline or salty.

Nestled in the southern Oregon Cascade Mountains, Crater Lake formed from Mount Mazama, a collapsed volcano.

It is the deepest lake in the US, with a maximum depth of 1,943 feet.

Visitors are regularly mesmerized by the lake’s deep blue color. The hues likely result from the lake being fed only by rain and snow.

Visitors can admire the pure waters by driving the 33-mile Rim Drive in Crater Lake National Park.

You gain stunning panoramic views from the drive’s 30 overlooks.

While private boats are not permitted, park visitors may take a boat tour in summer through a park-certified concessioner.
