Crystal Lake Camps and Outdoor Center

 
During the winter, come and enjoy a day or two of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing over glacial moraines at the Crystal Lake Ski Center. We offer student, scout, and homeschool groups of all experience levels over 20 miles of groomed trails designed for skiing. In the fall and spring, groups are welcome to hike those trails, canoe in Crystal Lake, and utilize our Rock Climbing Wall and High Ropes Course. Groups are encouraged to lodge on-site in one of our cabins.
