The Crater Launch Site was introduced in 1.12. It is located on the east side of the rebound peak in the Kerbin Crater. The coordinates of the crater Launch Site are Lat: 8.385973 Long: -179.697715

Like other 1.12 launch sites, it consists of a pad and limited support buildings. The steep slope shows up in the outbuilding arrangement, and that the launch pad's ramp runs into the hillside and is unavailable.

Unsurprisingly, the Crater Rim tracking station is the nearest part of the communications network (if available)

Launching from Crater

You can only launch from Crater if you enable Allow other Launchsites in the Difficulty Settings. When enabled you can launch a rocket from the VAB via the dropdown menu under the Launch button. When you hover over it, a menu appears with available launch sites. Select the arrow next to Dessert Launch Site to launch from there.
