Amtrak Cascades and Coast Starlight service connects Eugene with west coast cities from Los Angeles to Seattle. Take the five hour train ride from Eugene to Klamath Falls, then hop on a shuttle to Crater Lake. Bring your bicycle along for some epic cycling around Crater Lake.


Driving to Crater Lake is a wonderful way to soak-up Oregon's scenic beauty. There are two routes from Eugene - Springfield to Crater Lake National Park:

There are no gas stations in Crater Lake National Park. The Mazama Camper Store in Mazama Village sells gasoline during the summer season but we recommend you fuel up in the small towns of Prospect (on OR-62 from Roseburg) or Chemult (on Hwy 97 from Oakridge).

For GPS use the coordinates 42° 53' 48.91"N 122° 08' 03.08"W (Steel Visitor Center), or try "Crater Lake" as a town or waypoint. There is no physical address. Mobile phone coverage is spotty within and around the park.
