I had plans to go to Yellowstone last June also but when I called they told me that my camp spot was under 2 feet of snow and there was 8 feet piled around it.
Crater Lake is always open from the West entrance off Hwy 230. Or the Southern route out of Chiloquin, Rt 62. The FS keeps the road clear up to the lodge on the rim. You may have to park a 1/4 to 1/2 mile away and peek through a tunnel to see the Lake.
Crater Lake is simply amazing. I always am amazed by it's scale. I usually see it at least twice a year.
