Crystal Lake Campground

Area Status: Unreachable
  
 

Crystal Lake Campground located on Crystal Lake in the shadow of Mt. Harlow at an elevation of 5,700 feet. The camp is situated in a delightfully thick stand of spruce. The 28 campsites are large, secluded and widely spaced. The campground is attractive with several hiking trails and a picturesque lake, well suited for canoeing. Bring a tube, raft or canoe. This is an excellent family campground not only because of the lake, but also the large network of trails. A nominal fee charged per day per site. Limit of 10 people per site. Please limit your stays to 16 days.

Bears may frequent the area; keep all food out of sight in approved containers and remove all food from area after eating. Mandatory food storage is required.
