Rockville Fish & Game offers to every member, and their family, a wonderful little piece of serenity. Located on Crystal Lake’s south end is a cottage that provides bathrooms, a kitchen, sitting area, screened porch, a picnic area, a spacious dock, and a row boat available for each member to use.
If you’re a fisherman, the lake extends a challenge. Bass, trout, and bluegills are abundant. The boat must be signed up for but there is plenty of space to fish from the dock. Have your own boat? RF&G rents out slips on its’ dock. There is a boat launch right next to the dock if you care to use your boat, with plenty of parking. Paddlers have a place to store their canoe too. Not a fishermen? There is access to a public beach just a stone’s throw away. Members seem to socialize at the cottage year round. Ice fishing is becoming very popular. Opening Day starts very early with various activities.
All season long there are work parties and pot luck dinners. Thursday nights offer a lot to do at almost any RF&G location. So, bring your family and your friends to a wonderful location to enjoy the scenery and the fishing–most of all remember to observe all boating rules, and play safely.
Boating at Shenipsit Lake
The Crystal Lake Committee donated a canoe to the Snip Assoc. for general use. Now, anyone from the club can use any of the loaner boats at the Snip for fishing. Just bring oars, or electric motor or battery, and all other necessary equipment needed.
Just go to the boat shack and sign in to use a boat. Good idea to bring your membership card!! Just mention that you come from the RFG club, and someone will help you get a boat to the water.
