If you are more into the walking part then try the area called Srní. We stay at the Hotel Srní and you basically walk the land-skiing trails. Or if it's walking/boating then try Lipno. Both are good bases to explore the National Park.

Sumava is the largest National Park in the Czech Republic. There are many good bases just randomly: Modrava, Kvilda, Zelezna Ruda, Kasperske Hory, Stozec, Horni Plana, etc. These are the most known. If you want it quieter find one on your own.

There are lots of walking/hiking trails in the Sumava. The already suggested towns/villages would all make good bases. IMO of all those suggested, Kasperske Hory would probably make the best base. It has a very attractive cobbled centre with plenty of eateries to chose from. I love Srni, Kvilda & Prasily. All have plenty of walking trails to chose from. One of my favourites walks is from Prasily to the lookout tower at Polednik.
