CLRC has both a rowing center on Crystal Lake as well as an indoor training facility housed at CrossFit StormFront.
Kamijima Rowing Center
The Rowing Center was built in 2005 at Kamijima park. It is on the west end of the lake next to the Lakewood town hall. The center can hold 4 eights, 4 fours, and six doubles or singles. The coach’s launch is also stored in the center when not in use. In January of 2009, a roof was added and the center is now officially known as the Kamijima Boat House.
The boat house is open from March (when the docks are put in), until late November (docks are pulled). You can row anytime, however it is recommended to row outside of wake times between Memorial day and Labor day.
The club has two docks, a main dock and an auxiliary dock. The main dock will always be at Kamijima park. The auxiliary dock may be down at Main beach if there is a scrimmage or regatta on the lake.
There are plenty of spaces at the West Beach parking lot or in front of the Lakewood town hall (during non-business hour
