This cinder cone is an amazing view from one of the pull-outs along rim-drive. You can take a boat tour over to it, but there is limited availability and the accessibility is very difficult to get to the boat landing.

What they don't tell you about booking a Crater Lake Boat Tour is that there is VERY limited availability. They release very few seats for reservations ahead of time. They require you to appear onsite to reserve the very few remaining spots 24 hours in...More

Wizard Island looks stunning sitting in Crater Lake. The views of it were beautiful. If you are at the Crater Lake Lodge, look to your left and you will see it. We didn't see it at first, you have to really look to the left...More

Where else can you see a small volcano surrounded by one of the world's deepest, clearest lakes inside the crater of a much larger volcano?! Take the Rim Drive for a series of breathtaking views of Wizard Island.

This is the icon in the Lake. If boat tour is possible, it will be absolutely worth to do so. Also good for photo shoots.

The boat rides around and to the island are just a part of this great National Park. We participated in hiking trails that were best at rankings of intermediate and higher difficulty. Many miles of trails and the fabulous views are almost unlimited.
