Phantom Ship is the smaller of two islands found on the surface of Crater Lake in southern Oregon. It is made of volcanic rock that is one-and-a-half-million years old, and gets its name due to the foggy weather conditions that will often obscure it from view, and its shape which is similar to a sailing ship.
