Little Crater Lake

In this short video, we make a quick stop at Little Crater Lake south of Mt. Hood and learn about this unique little wonder.

The trip out to the lake is great if you are already in the area, but I wouldn’t make a day trip just to see it.

Access to Little Crater lake can be from the trails while camping at Timothy Lake, people hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail, or using a little parking lot in the Little Crater Lake Campground off of highway 26.  Little Crater Lake Campground is a small, but nice place to stay and is less busy than Timothy Lake.  However, the road to get there is full of potholes, so drive slow and have a vehicle with good ground clearance.

Here is the link to get there: Little Crater Lake.

  1. This was interesting. I had no idea it was there! I wonder why the temperature stays constant and if It freezes in the winter. Bless you. Love, Mom



    • It doesn’t freeze over in the winter because the water flowing is still above freezing. The cold comes from snow melt trapped underground… It is a neat little place!
