Crater Lake,  Oregon, USA,  is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. 

Crater Lake,  Oregon, USACrater Lake, also known as the “Gem of the Cascades,” is the deepest lake in the U.S. Surrounded by 2,000-foot cliffs, this pristine sapphire lake is disrupted only by the peak known as Wizard Island, which sits nearly in the center of Crater Lake. The lake partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot (655 m)-deep caldera (volcanic feature usually formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption) that was formed around 7,700 years ago
