Crater Lake is definitely worth visiting, but you need to…
1) Bring lots of bug spray, particularly in June and July. The mosquitoes can be downright oppressive.
2) Go later in the season as the Wizard Island boats don’t start until early July, and the rim drive doesn’t open until late July, snow dependent. Plus, Watchman’s Peak, Mt. Scott, and other high points usually have a lot of snow on them until later season.
3) Check out the nearby attractions just outside the north entrance of the park. Diamond Lake, Mt. Thielsen, and waterfalls along the North Umpqua River are all worth seeing.

It is just so beautiful. It is definitly worth the trip! I was there in July on 2005 We did a lot of walking. My tips for a visitor, bring extra film digital or regular what ever you are using these days.) and Bring your walking shoes! and wear layers. There was hot sun and a cold breeze, and there was still snow. (I went sleigh riding in July there!)over 5 years ago
