“Amazing vacation destination!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We just returned from our 4th of July vacation to Crystal Lake. I cannot say enough good things about this area. The lake is unbelievably clear and swim able. Beautiful lake homes. We would highly recommend renting a house and spending your next vacation at Crystal Lake and the surrounding areas.

“Beautiful clear lake with rolling hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Crystal Lake is a wonderful lake to swim, fish, boat, waterski, or whatever you enjoy. It is a sandy bottom lake with a long shelf so it is ideal for families with young children. It does not get deep in most areas unless you walk out a city block or so!

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We live here and hope not toooooo many others will come to discover 'our' lake. Particularly wonderful in the 'off' season when it is quiet with ever changing moods.

“My favorite inland lake in northwestern Michigan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We went out on Crystal twice to go tubing. It is so nice to be on a larger inland lake. There was room to really have some fun. The new DNR launch off M-115 is very nice! Watch out for the sandbars on the south shore. The town dock in Beulah is very nice to use to grab an ice cream.
