Any pulled a trailer through Crater Lake, OR? I'll be heading northbound through the Klamath Falls area, and thought it might be a cool side detour if the roads and parking are amenable to pulling the trailer.

The roads are fine for trailers, but half the park was still snowbound in July last year and they had just cleared the other half.

You might also consider leaving the trailer in Klamath Falls and driving the tow vehicle through the park. You will be able to see a lot more of the park that way. Snow will not cause a problem.

A friend of mine took a few good picturs of Crater Lake with the snow falling on July 4 once.

We have parked at the casino, just north of the park road and took the toad from there. I have seen snow along the park roads in August and saw snow up over the 2nd floor lookout at the lodge in June, so check before you go.

You do not want to try to pull your trailer all around the lake. It would just not be fun or enjoyable. Hopefully, you will stay in the park cg--it's beautiful-- and then tour the lake. Or stay in one of the private parks outside the park. Or stay in Collier State Park on Hwy 97. It is a nice state park.

Long up hill climb that will suck the fuel. Be sure your tank is full before you get too far out of K Falls. On second thought it might be a smarter thing to park the trailer someplace like Collier Memorial State Park and make a nice day trip to Crater Lake. Then you can continue north on US97 making a second stop at LaPine State Park.

I agree with staying at Collier Memorial state park and doing the day trip to Crater Lake. Last year toward the end of June only the west road was open due to snow but the road up to Crater Lake is excellent. It is a must see if you are in the area.

We have pulled thru Crater Lake Park many times. However they have changed the upper area now so there is very little parking and really not much room to turn around. Even with our small motorhome. However if you by pass the shops at the top and follow the road thru its still a great place to visit. We usaly stay at Diamond lake. Only a couple miles out the North Gate. Has Lots of camp sites and a Good Sam Park. All open in the summer months.. We have seen snow in that area every month of the year. However in the summer months the roads are warm so just nice to watch..
