We didn't swim, just stopped to walk the beach a bit. It's a great beach are. The only thing that is missing is a nice restaurant near the beach with a view.

Once you vacate to crystal lake you will start thinking about selling your house and moving to a Michigan paradise. I have been coming to this lake since I was a small child and every year I am again astounded by Michigan's beauty. You will not regret coming here! Make sure you check out the multiple ice cream shops, The Fusion restaurant and of course the many places to site see. Don't forget to jump in the crystal clear water many times before you leave!

This lake has such clear water, one can differentiate a dime from a quarter in chest high water. The colour scheme goes from light green near the shore to dark green to dark blue where it gets deep as in about 15 feet and more. On a sunny day, it is so beautiful.
There are coves and outlets. The west end of the lake is 1 mile from Lake Michigan.
There is always a calm place to boat/ ski depending upon the direction of the wind.
It is a large lake, 2 1/2 miles by 8 miles and is Michigan`s 9th largest inland lake. Maximum depth is about 165 feet.
The nearest major attraction is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

The entire family, six adults and four children five years old and younger vacationed on Crystal Lake. Beautiful lake that does seem to be crystal clear. A lot of shallow areas around the shoreline if the lake. We recommend this Lake as a vacation destination. A lot of other places to see and visit nearby!

We stayed at a friends house on the lake and all of us vowed to come back before we even left! The water was indeed Crystal clear and not as cold as I would have thought. Not too far from Lake Michigan or the town of Frankfort.
