Phantom Ship Island: The peak of a ridge in Crater Lake, this small island is around 300 feet long with a maximum width of 200. The ridge of spires stands 163 feet above the lake surface creating a ship-like appearance, with the spires being the tall masts of this mighty vessel. With a closeup view, we see the island supports some trees: 7 of the species found in the park grow together .... they aren't found together in the rest of the park ... making this little island a tree sanctuary.
