Crater Lake National Park Day
New bill would give Oregon landmark a designated day

A new bill has passed the Oregon House which would designate May 22 as Crater Lake National Park Day to recognize a famous Oregon landmark and the deepest lake in the United States.

Chief sponsors Representative Vikki Breese-Iverson (R-Prineville) and Representative E. Werner Reschke (R-Klamath Falls) proposed HB 3162 to celebrate this natural resource and state treasure.

At 1,943 feet deep, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States. It is also the clearest lake on the planet with clarity down to 143’. It boasts some of the purest water on the planet which is comprised entirely of snow and rainfall.

“Oregon’s natural environment is one of the greatest things about our state,” said Rep. Breese-Iverson. “It’s important to recognize our unique environments to not only celebrate our state’s natural beauty, but also the benefits they bring us through scenic tourism and getting more people outside to enjoy nature.”

“Crater Lake is Oregon’s only National Park, renowned for its deep blue water and the amazing 360-degree bowl that surrounds this majestic lake,” added Rep. Reschke. “Crater Lake National Park is truly a national treasure located here in Oregon, and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy it with a short day-trip. Crater Lake National Park Day recognizes this park as a defining landmark of Oregon.”
