Welcome to Crystal Lake RV Park – your all-in-one outdoor recreation resource in Northwestern Illinois. With easy access from Exits 41 or 44 off I-88, the park is located adjacent to the Hennepin Canal Parkway and just across the highway from Centennial Park. With all that those recreation resources have to offer, the real fun starts right here!
At Crystal Lake Park, we offer 350 feet of sandy beach that is impeccably groomed on a daily basis, surrounding a lake where the word “crystal” also describes the clarity of the water. The beach rivals what you might find at many 5-star oceanside resorts, where you walk and enjoy that feeling of the sand between your toes. Our lake offers so much more than just swimming and sunbathing. We have a collection of toys that are designed to appeal to just about everybody in the family. Within 3 feet of water or less, you will enjoy:
Inflatable toys in the deeper water, requiring life jacket rental*, are some of our most popular water attractions:
Shore fishing (campers only) in the deeper end of our lake is another recreational option. With a maximum depth of 32 ft., our lake is stocked with largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and brown trout. It also supports a native catfish population. An Illinois fishing license is required.
Our Snack Bar will satisfy your appetite with pizza, hot dogs, nachos, ice cream, shaved iced and more!
The beach will open from Memorial Weekend to Labor Day weekend.

Our RV park is located 2 miles off Interstate 88. Open year-round.
We offer 35 pull-thrus and 37 back-in sites for daily, monthly, and seasonal rentals, all with full hook-ups (city water, city sewer, and 50-30-20-amp electric service). Wi-Fi Internet is available and free. These are the biggest sites that you will find in a private park, all a very spacious, flat 50' wide by 65'-90' long in size. Our sites are designed to accommodate large RVs and are not ideally suited for tents. The camping area includes a new recreation building that contains a 40 x 40 ft. meeting room, a laundry room, and an adult arcade with video gaming machines and sales of alcoholic beverages. Probably the best features of the new camping area are the six family-style bathrooms – rarely found at even the finest RV parks anywhere in the country.
Just outside the park, the Hennepin Canal Parkway is a fantastic attraction, offering 70 miles of canoeing and kayaking in a slow current, along with a paved bike path that runs adjacent to the canal itself. Need a canoe or kayak? Campers may bring their own life jackets or use ours for $10.00 per hour. Ask about going kayaking.
