One of the highlights of the summer was our weekend camping at Crystal Lake in the Northern Highlands American Legion State Forest. Crystal Lake is a small, circular lake, with sand beaches stretching its entire shoreline…and one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve seen in a while. We lucked out and grabbed a waterfront site as we planned a last minute get away to, well, wherever. Somewhere new, and beautiful, and close enough we would have some hope for a peaceful car ride with our 4 month old.
We hiked, we biked, we swam. We loved Crystal Lake.
