Located in the spectacular South Platte River Valley less than one hour southwest of Denver, Crystal Lake was established in 1872. As a popular stop along the Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad, Crystal Lake functioned as an ice production facility in the winter and a resort in the summer.
For over a century, Crystal Lake has been a favorite destination for generations of vacationers.
The 200 acre resort presently includes a seven room bed and breakfast with a central lodge. The resorts on-site, award-winning caterer, Trout River Catering, serves fresh Colorado influenced cuisine.
An event pavilion, overlooking Crystal Lake and the South Platte River, plays host to numerous weddings, reunions, conferences and other private events, all of which are proudly catered by Trout River Catering.
