I've been coming up to Crystal Lake since 1953 and always have a wonderful time. The lake is clean and clear and large enough for boating. The area near the shore is very shallow, so it is great for kids. Lots of nice cottages for rent and resorts. Great bike trail.

Crystal Lake is a fairly big lake (nearly 9000 acres) that is bordered by highways M-22 and highway 31 on the upper northwest coast of lower Michigan near Frankfort. The locals say that parts of the lake are well over 150 feet deep. In the town of Frankfort, shops, restaurants, and a park sit beautifully right upon its shore. For a small town, Frankfort had quite a bit to offer and the smell of food was often in the air as we noted various shops and eateries which included, clothing, pizza, ice cream, fudge, a dime store of sorts, and much more. I plan to return to the area to check it our further in a few months. One thing that alot of visitors will like is the small home town feel of this area. As always, be safe and enjoy your travels!

We own a lake house on Crystal Lake which we visit every year. It is so peaceful and the water is great. Everyone is so friendly and helps each other out, shares food, stories and drinks. It is just a perfect place to waterski, swim, tube, fish or just sit by the shore and relax. A perfect place to really get away from it all.

A big, deep and crystal clear lake with nice trails and pleasant villages near each end.
