Lake Carasaljo’s perimeter is 4.5 miles. It stretches over 176 acres of land. In the summer months, a lot of activities take place at and around the lake. These activities include swimming, bicycling, running, picnicking, and plenty others. The lake was renamed from Iron Berger works to Briscksburg. In 1865 the lake was given its current name and the name is still in use to date. Lake Carasaljo is a reservoir type of lake.

It is believed that Lake Carasaljo was named after the daughters of the owner of Bergen ironworks, who was Joseph Woolston Brick. The tale has it that his three daughters named; Caroline (Carrie), Sarah (Sally), and Josephine (Jo) drowned in the lake. Therefore the abbreviations of their names became the acronym CARASALJO for which the lake was named.  In 1886 Joseph Woolston’s wife, Manetta, decided to lend her name to its sister lake which was created that same year.
