Crater Lake National Park is a United States National Park located in southern Oregon. Established in 1902, Crater Lake National Park is the fifth oldest national park in the United States and the only one in the state of Oregon. The park encompasses the caldera of Crater Lake, a remnant of a destroyed volcano, Mount Mazama, and the surrounding hills and forests. The lake is 1,943- feet  deep at its deepest point, which makes it the deepest lake in the United States, the second deepest in North America and the ninth deepest in the world. Crater Lake is often referred to as the seventh deepest lake in the world, but this former listing excludes the approximately 3,000-foot  depth of subglacial  Lake Vostok in Antarctica, which resides under nearly 13,000 feet  of ice, and the recent report of a 2,740-foot  maximum depth for Lake O'Higgins located on the border of Chile and Argentina.  Source
