Almost 2,000 feet deep (594 meters), Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park in south-west Oregon is the deepest lake in the United States, the second deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere, and the seventh deepest in the world.
The lake's surface is six miles wide. There is no inlet or outlet to the lake: it is supplied with water from the great amounts of snow that fall every year. It took ~250 years for the lake to fill to today�s level The lake maintains its current level because the amount of rain and snowfall equals the evaporation and seepage rate. Lake level has varied only over a range of 5 m (16 ft) in the past 100 years.
The startling blue waters of Crater Lake owe their color to the great depth of the crater. And the lake's water is remarkably pure. The U.S. National Park Service describes Crater Lake as the cleanest large body of water in the world.
