Greetings from Phantom Ship!
Phantom Ship isn't a ship of courseit's an island, the tip of an ancient mountain much older than Mount Mazama. When you see Phantom Ship from one of the overlooks on the road around the lake, you see it from 1,000 feet above; it looks like a ship sometimes from there.
But from down on the water, it looks like what it isvery old rock sticking out of the water. The boat goes pretty close to it, but no one is allowed to go on to the island, so it remains today as it has been for ages, changed only by the forces of nature.
Take the Rim Drive or
go back to the Crater Lake Village, or go back to the
Cascade Peaks Index or the Crater Lake National Park page.
