The City of Crystal Lake's namesake lake, Crystal Lake, is under the shared jurisdiction of the City of Crystal Lake and the Village of Lakewood, which patrol and regulate the lake. (See boating regulations link below)  The Crystal Lake Park District issues gate keys for their boat launches at Main Beach, 300 Lake Shore Drive and at West Beach, 2330 Lake Avenue. (Please note that these regulations do not apply to Three Oaks Recreation Area lakes. No outside watercraft is allowed at Three Oaks Recreation Area, but watercraft is available for rental.)   

In order to place your watercraft on Crystal Lake, whether from a public or private launch site, the following is required.  Please note that this pertains to all types of watercraft, including jet skis, kayaks, inflatables and more.  Please see the Crystal Lake Boating & Safety Regulations link below for details.
