While Crater Lake National Park is open year-round, the Lodge itself is only open from the end of May typically (it is scheduled to open 5/26 in 2010) through mid-October.  The lodge is closed for this season 

Crater Lake receives A LOT of snow up into the spring season and starting again in early fall.  So, if your vehicle is prepared for it, snowy months can be beautiful times to explore the park.  Just make sure to check ahead that the roads have been plowed.  The "Rim Road" is usually in pretty good shape for most of the year.

There is no van or shuttle directly to the lodge.  For reservations or more information call Xanterra at (888) 774-2728.

 Have a great trip!

Are the girls fans of the "Twilight" book series? If they are, they'll be excited to find out that Kalaloch is minutes away from Forks, the town where “Twilight” takes place. The nearby Kalaloch Lodge is surrounded by miles of peaceful beaches and beautiful forests that provide the ideal landscape for Twilighters to do some fantasy sightseeing.

Also consider booking a lake or rainforest tour or exploring these areas on your own!

If you're traveling in the fall, some great hotel deals are available at hotels in the region.

Some great tips from the Just for Kids section of our guide to Mount Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades are listed below:

Become a Junior Ranger.
Learn about the park’s plants and animals by picking up a Junior Ranger booklet ($1 donation requested) at any visitor center or ranger station. Complete the activities inside to earn your Junior Ranger badge.
 
Get your hands on a Discovery Pack.
Imagine how much better you could explore the park if you had nature guides, maps, a journal and binoculars! Borrow a Discovery Pack for a $5 donation at the Olympic National Park, Hurricane Ridge or Hoh Visitor Centers or the Storm King, Kalaloch or Quinault Information Stations.
 
Take a Hike.
Many short nature trails have self-guiding booklets and are great fun. Hike the 0.75-mile Hall of Mosses Trail in the Hoh Rain Forest or the one-mile Quinault Loop Trail at Lake Quinault in the Olympic National Forest.
 
See, Hear and Touch.
At the Children’s Discovery Room at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles, you can hold a deer antler, feel a bit of animal fur or listen to a coyote howl. You can also dress as a ranger and visit a “mini” ranger station, solve giant puzzles, and more!
 
Walk with a Park Ranger.
Get the real scoop on nature during a guided walk. On a forest walk, see if you can find a banana slug, a salamander or maybe even a Roosevelt elk! On a tide pool walk, look for sea stars or watch an octopus turn colors.

As of now, firearms are not allowed in national parks.

Although a new law permitting concealed loaded firearms at national parks was passed in May, it will not take effect until February. The Interior Department will continue to enforce current restrictions until then.

Under the current regulation, firearms are generally prohibited in national parks, but citizens may transport unloaded and dismantled or cased firearms and carry firearms while participating in approved hunting programs and under certain other circumstances, according to a Department of Interior spokesperson.

Please remember that firearms regulations may vary by park. Check with the National Park Service or the park you plan to visit before your trip for most up-to-date information.

For more information, see the NPS Great Smoky Laws & Policies website.

Hello bleedheavymetal,

Soldier Lakes--Patrol Ridge Loop is located 42 road miles north of Stanley, ID.

To get to the trailhead, drive northwest from Stanley on Idaho Highway 21 for 18.6 miles, and then turn left onto the gravel road. Almost immediately, you'll turn right again onto another gravel road. (From here, it's 21 miles to the trailhead at Josephus Lake.) You'll then cross over Marsh Lake on a bridge and come to a fork in the road--stay left and follow the road over Vanity Summit. 

As you descend from Vanity Summit, you'll be on a graded dirt road that only has one and a half lanes, and is often steep. Be careful. Around 16 miles from ID 21, you'll reach the Float Creek Road and Rapid River junction. Stay left and follow Float Creek Road for 5 miles. There's room for about 5 cars at the Josephus Lake Trailhead parking lot.

Hike the trail for 3 miles, and you'll hit Soldier Lakes.

I hope this helps! Remember to come back to OhRanger.com to post pictures and comments about your trip to Soldier Lakes.
