Many organizations support Crater Lake National Park. We each support one another’s efforts which in turn support Crater Lake National Park and make it an amazing place to visit.
The Crater Lake National Park Trust works to help protect, promote, and enhance Crater Lake National Park, its unique water purity, and its value for human inspiration and knowledge. We envision a future in which Crater Lake National Park is widely recognized as an Oregon icon and a national treasure; in which the Park serves as a thriving laboratory and classroom; and in which every visitor to the park feels a deep connection and love for Crater Lake.
