Crystal Lake is a 40-acre private lake in Mountain Rest. This is a great fishing, canoeing and kayaking lake. The lake was built by the Visage Family in the 1950s and was the first lake for barefoot skiing. Benjie was filmed and on the news, a great event in the 60’s black and white tv era. Crystal Lake Road circles the lake. 60% of the land around Crystal Lake has never been developed so this is a lake with few homes.
