The road at Crater Lake National Park that I mainly used last summer is now open for travelers.
According to the Herald and News:
CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK — The North Entrance Road and West Rim Drive in Crater Lake National Park will open for travel Friday afternoon, May 25 – just in time for the holiday weekend.
Superintendent Craig Ackerman announced that visitors will now be able to drive to and from the park via this popular route and access spectacular views of the lake from West Rim Drive. This is a very early opening for Crater Lake’s North Entrance. Warm temperatures and a low snow pack have resulted in a greatly accelerated spring opening this year, the news release said.
The park anticipates high visitation for the holiday weekend. Visitors should expect long lines and delays at park entrance stations and other locations, including Rim Village. If possible, consider arriving before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. to avoid major congestion.
