The only in-park lodge of Crater Lake National Park
But a public outcry pushed the National Park Service to renovate it instead. The $35 million makeover proved to be the most expensive hotel construction project in the history of Oregon. Workers had to disassemble much of the lodge, numbering each of the rocks in its walls. Then they rebuilt the hotel and reassembled the facade The lodge reopened in 1995 with elegant woodwork in the Great Hall and a modern bath for each guestroom. The lodge had finally become the building it should have been from the first.
