small town values
Crystal Lake, Iowa is a small town in north central Iowa established in 1898 that is today a good, solid community with a population of approximately 250. Most people recognize our town as the “Home of the World’s Largest Bullhead.” The bullhead statue was even featured on the cover of Oddball Iowa: A Guide to Some Really Strange Places by Jerome Pohlen. We have a beautiful lake that was recently dredged, parks, camping, and more.
