The main beach on Crystal Lake is at the end of Spring Valley Road. This beautiful sandy private beach consists of about 140 feet of beachfront that includes two docks, a deck, volleyball court, swim raft, port-a- potty, and a shed that houses various water toys and sports equipment. There is also a pavilion that was built and dedicated in 2003 in memory of former resident Jim Hanley.

For the safety and enjoyment of all Highlanders and to honor legal agreements with our neighbors, the board has adopted the following policies and rules. Please share them with your guests.
