Crater Lake National Park has begun spring opening operations along West Rim Drive. The Crater Lake road crew has cleared snow to the Diamond Lake Overlook, about five miles northwest of Rim Village. The first mile of West Rim Drive, from Rim Village to Discovery Point, is currently open to motorized vehicle traffic. The North Entrance is projected to open to vehicles between Memorial Day and mid-June, dependent on weather.
Crater Lake will begin charging an entrance fee beginning Friday, May 6. Entrance fees for a seven-day pass into the park are $15 per car or $10 per person for motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.
