For the past two years, as Crystal Lake has been undergoing some rehab as part of the larger park project, boat rentals have been paused. Beginning May 1st, you can once again rent row boats, paddle boats, kayaks, and canoes at The Lake House.
Rentals range from $8-14, depending on the boat and length of time, and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Life jackets are included with your rental.
Find hours and more information here.
