The space available is always perfect. You can fish, take a relaxing walk or just feed the ducks and geese. It is always relaxing to visit the lake park. I go home rejuvenated and look forward to visiting Crystal Springs again.

Great family camping and fishing area. Many old growth trees provide plenty of shade. Water and electrical hookups available. Permanent restroom and shower facilities. Lakes are clean and spring fed. Plenty of wildlife as the park is close to the Little Blue River. The park will fill up early on summer holidays.

Stayed a night here and am impressed with the lay out of the lakes, picnic areas and wildlife viewing areas. Gorgeous views of water, numerous aquatic birds abound. Watched close to 100 loons come in to land early in the morning, herons, geese, ducks here as well. Very picturesque, saw a wildlife photographer set up too. Reasonably priced lot for... More

Beautiful area. They have places to camp. The geese seemed friendly. It isn't to far away from the town.

For such a small town it has 3 really good parks. This one has multiple lakes to fish off of and awesome campgrounds next to a decent playground. You can drive atop a hill and primitive camp which gives you a great view of the area in the morning. Great fishing spot.

I have always enjoyed Crystal Springs in Fairbury. We started going there when I was a little boy. People have camped out there for a long time and I have memories from many years ago. Many locals bring their campers here because the next closest lake is over an hour away and this way you can camp and still run... More

It is a beautiful park where many enjoy camping, swimming and fishing. The flooding in early May has caused the park to close until further notice. Check before you go. We tried to go out, but the roads were blocked off. We did park on the outskirts to get a great view of the stars, listen to a variety of... More

Plenty of wildlife to watch and water to enjoy. This is a family friendly park with plenty of walking space. We go on regular family walks with our pets and enjoy the early morning peace and quiet this park offers. Fun to fish but not for swimming. RV accessible.
