Park Newspaper

The park's newspaper and visitor guide, Crater Lake Reflections, is a great source of information for planning a trip to the park. It's published twice a year. The summer/fall edition usually arrives in early June; the winter/spring edition usually comes out in early December. You can download the most recent versions below. If you'd prefer a hard copy, we can send you one. Contact us through the link at the bottom of this page.
