AAA Editor Notes
Wizard Island is in Crater Lake within Crater Lake National Park. Access is obtained from Volcano Boat Cruises. The island is a cinder cone rising 760 feet above the lake's surface. According to legend, the spirit Llao was thrown into the lake by an enemy spirit; monsters devoured all except the head, leaving it to form the island. Fishing is permitted, and a 1-mile trail leads from the shore to the cone's crater. The hike is strenuous, and there are no services on the island. Ages 0-2 are not permitted.
