Smoke at Crater Lake
Occasionally, during the fire season (July, August, September) smoke may move over the park from fires hundreds of miles away in Oregon or California. The photograph above shows the impact smoke can have on the visibility of the lake. The links below provide the latest information on fires in the Crater Lake area. To view the current visibility of the lake visit the Sinnott Memorial Webcam.
