South Sioux City Underwater Camera at Crystal Cove Lake



When Nebraska Department of Roads built the over-pass on high-way 20 over high-way 77 known as the Kingsbury Interchange in 1979 it created Crystal Cove Lake.  This was done in the mid 70’s as part of that high-way project.  After it was done, we were left with a nice 30 acre lake. 

This lake has turned into a great park for walking around on the lighted trail to stretch your legs or take in the many different kinds of wildlife such as over 200 different kinds of bird spices that have been seen out there.  Fishing is another activity that is quite popular at Crystal Cove.  Part of the reason for that is three times per year Nebraska Game and Parks stocks the lake with fish; twice with 4,500 trout and once with 800-1,000 catfish.  This has been going on for over 20 years.  Game and Parks do these fish stockings to benefit the anglers and to improve ecosystem.  The last stocking took place on January 16, 2015 at 11:00 am.  In 2009 the city installed an 18 hole disc golf course in this park and it has become quite popular as it is the only 18 hole course in Siouxland.
