292 Acres of Abundant Fish and Wildlife with Public Boat Access and Swimming Beaches.

Crystal Lake is located in the southern Twin Cities metro area, 1/2 mile from the intersection of County Road 46 and Interstate Highway 35 in the cities of Burnsville and Lakeville MN. It is directly across Highway 35 from Buck Hill ski resort.

The Crystal Lake Improvement Association is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Since our foundation in 1962, our primary goal is to improve our lake quality.

Crystal Lake is part of the Black Dog Watershed Management Organization, and covers 292 acres with a maximum depth of 37 feet.  Crystal Lake has one public boat landing, one public fishing dock, and two public beaches (one on both the east and west sides of the lake).

Your Curb Is Also Your Shoreline!

Anything that enters the storm drain can enter Crystal Lake. Grass clippings and leaves contain nitrogen and phosphorous which can in turn cause uncontrolled growth of algae and aquatic weeds. Help keep our water quality high and our algae treatment costs low by keeping our curbs free of debris.

Crystal Lake is a great place to fish, ski, and spend time with my family.
We are very fortunate to be able to live in such a great neighborhood.
