Favorite thing: Crater Lake’s “other island” is also very interesting. Phantom Ship Island got its name from the resemblance to a pirate ship. The island is much smaller than Wizard Island but is still as tall as a 16 story building. The island is composed of erosion-resistant rock that is 400,000 years old making it the oldest exposed rock in the caldera.
