Snowmobile Adventures in Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake Snowmobiling

There are guided and unguided snowmobile rentals available at the north entrance of Crater Lake National Park. There are full and half-day rentals also available near Diamond Lake. The only place snowmobiles are permitted by the National Park Service is from the North Entrance Road to North Junction, where the road meets Rim Drive. Snowmobiles must stay on the unplowed section of road, and driving on plowed roads or parking lots is prohibited. The maximum speed inside the park is 45 mph.

The Diamond Lake Lodge has snowmobile rentals and many more trails that allow snowmobiles. There are snowmobile repairs and sales through the lodge. Visitors can also rent skis and get something to eat at their restaurant. There are excellent accommodations at the Diamond Lake Lodge, which is only 5 miles north of Crater Lake. A variety of units are available, and this lodge offers privacy and luxurious amenities. You don't have to go far to find quality snowmobiles and many trails to take them on in the winter, including the Umpqua National Forest, also near Crater Lake.

Guided Snowmobile Tours

Guided snowmobile tours are available throughout the week, but advanced reservations are required Monday - Friday. You can also book "do-it-yourself" half and full-day rentals available any day of the week.

You must be at least 21 years of age age with valid ID and/or a snowmobile operators permit to rent a snowmobile.

There is a $25 surcharge for 4-stoke snowmobile rental.
