Crater lake is the deepest lake in the United States measuring 1932feet at its deepest point. It is also the 9th deepest lake in the world.
Crater lake is located in the south-central region of Oregon and it is the main feature of Crater Lake National Park. The lake partly fills a nearly 2,148 foot deep caldera that was formed almost 7,700 years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. The lake is 5 by 6 miles across with an average depth of 1,148 feet. Its deepest point has been measured at 1,949 feet deep. Crater Lake is considered the deepest lake in the United States, the second deepest lake in NOrth America, and the ninth deepest lake in the world.
The rankings to some may vary depending on certain variables. Onn the basis of comparing average depths among the world’s deepest lakes, Crater Lake would be the deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere and the third deepest in the world. Comparing average depths among the world’s lakes whose basins are entire above sea level, then Crater Lake is the deepest.
