Oregon’s Crater Lake is a spectacular place that contains the purest water on Earth. For generations, it has inspired wonder in families, artists, and scientists alike.

The Crater Lake National Park Trust is a nonprofit organization that helps to protect, promote, and enhance Crater Lake National Park, its unique water purity, and its value for human inspiration and knowledge.  You can also view a short video about our work.
