Newberry Crater submerged campsite


Newberry Crater is a caldera, the product of a powerful volcanic explosion. Burried under volcanic ash, ancient artifact suggest that humans lived comfortably here for thousands of years… until the massive explosion that devastated the area. Numerous eruptions of lava and ash made the area inhabitable for centuries by humans. Visit the Newberry Crater today and witness the alpine paradise it has become - until the volcano explodes again.
