Wizard Island, the cone-shaped island in Crater Lake, was large enough to attract early visitors, including photographer Fred Kiser. It received its name in 1885 from Will G. Steel. After the massive eruption of Mt. Mazama created Crater Lake, a number of smaller volcanic cones were created by periodic lava flows.

Wizard Island is the only one to extend above the surface of the lake. Note below in Related Items a colorized version created by Kiser that completely changes the feeling of the photograph..
