Crystal Lake Campground - Lewistown

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. This is a pack it in, pack it out campsite. Pets are allowed if on a leash. Handicap accessible toilets and water are available. Maximum trailer length is 32 feet.

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.

This lake isn't very deep with a depth of no more than 15 feet and covers 45 acres. As summer ends, the lake will be like a large shallow pond with a muddy shoreline. The water is constantly seeping out because the bottom is made up of porous limestone.

A nominal fee charged per day per site. Limit of 10 people per site. Please limit your stays to 16 days. Call the District Office for group reservations.
