Crater Lake is a moderately sized (16.8 acre), remote, glacial cirque lake located in the North Fork Fish Creek drainage. The lake lies on the Lolo National Forest (Ninemile Ranger District) in the proposed Great Burn Wilderness Area.
|Directions||Crater Lake can most easily be accessed by taking Fish Creek Road (USFS Road #343) from Interstate Highway 90, then traveling west on USFS Road #7750 to the campground and Forest Service outpost (Clearwater Crossing) at the end of the road. Take the North Fork Fish Creek Trail (USFS Trail #103) approximately 4 miles to an unofficial pack trail to the southwest which leads to Crater Lake. The hike to the lake is only ~ 1.5 miles from the trail junction, but the trail is extremely steep.|
