Crater Lake, Oregon. This is the deepest lake in the United States - 1,943 feet (592 m). The impressive average depth of this volcanic lake is due to the nearly symmetrical 4,000-foot (1,200 m) deep caldera formed 7,700 years ago during the violent climactic eruptions and subsequent collapse of Mount Mazama. Crater Lake has no streams flowing into or out of it. The lake's water commonly has a striking blue hue, and the lake is re-filled entirely from direct precipitation.
