Fodor's Expert Review Wizard Island

Crater Lake National Park Restaurant Fodor's Choice

The park's best picnic venue is on Wizard Island; pack a lunch and book yourself on one of the early-morning boat tour departures, reserving space on an afternoon return. There are no formal picnic areas and just pit toilets, but you'll discover plenty of sunny and shaded spots where you can enjoy a quiet meal and appreciate the astounding scene that surrounds you. The island is accessible by boat only, and to get to the boat dock you must hike down about 1 mile. The hike back up is strenuous.
