Crater Lake occupies the collapsed caldera of volcanic Mount Mazama in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. It is the deepest lake ( m) in the United States and the 7th deepest lake in the world. The water column mixes to a depth of about m in winter and spring from wind energy and cooling. The deep lake is mixed in winter and early spring. that flowed into Lake Idaho. Changes in the basalt caused by contact with water are used by geologists to detect the Lake Idaho shoreline. The 3,foot elevation contour represents the highest level of the lake shoreline.

GEOLOGY AND WATER RESOURCES OF THE MUD LAKE REGION, IDAHO, INCLUDING THE IS­ LAND PARK AREA-By HAROLD T. STEABNS, LESTER L. BRYAN, and LYNN CRANDALL ABSTRACT This report relates primarily to the area that contributes water to Mud Lake "through surface or underground channels, but the entire area covered is somewhat more extensive.


It is approximately bounded on the east and. Groundwater in the Mud Lake area resides in the eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP) aquifer, a sole-source fractured-basalt aquifer of significant economic value to the State of Idaho. Recharge to the Mud Lake area occurs from the Camas Creek and Medicine Lodge Creek drainage basins in the extreme northeastern extent of the aquifer, and groundwater in the aquifer flows downgradient (southwest) from the Mud Lake area.

Lake Idaho and the Glenns Ferry Formation By about four million years ago, a vast, fresh water lake covered much of what is now southwestern Idaho.

Known as Lake Idaho, it formed in a large depression, or graben, created by faulting in the western Snake River Plain. what is now Nevada, was diverted to its present graben. Lake Idaho existed.

Mud Lake historically was a seasonally flooded sink area where Camas Creek spread out and disappeared into the aquifer. These seasonally wet areas extended several miles farther south, east and west from Mud Lake’s present area. Over the years, dikes were built and water was kept in a small, but deeper lake.
