Highway 39 is open and exploring the Crystal Lake Recreation Area is the perfect day trip or weekend camping adventure. The local Cafe serves banana bread, sandwiches, and frito pie. The nearby lake offers fishing. Crystal Lake is one of the few naturally made lakes in California. Water levels vary but the lake is from 35 to 150 feet deep depending on the season. The surrounding forest provides plenty of camping and hiking. Camping is closed for the winter from November to May.
