Crystal Forest is summed up in "you get what you pay for"; its FREE. If you are looking for free/cheep NO hookups this is the place. The area is dry dusty desert. But Free is Free.
Close to the Petrified Forest.
Easy to get in and out.
Not a lot of people.
Would stay again, if trying to save money. - Joekam

To clarify precious reviews: Yes, two gift shops and same owner. The western gift shop has free camping, but no hookups. Some spots have a shady pavilion,and there are some teepees you could stay in for free, too. The eastern gift shop offers electric, 30amp, which does work, for $10. Neither has much in the way of food, just some candy bars, sodas and a six pack or two of Budweiser. Our kids (1, 3, and 12) had fun playing in the teepees and random petrified wood about the place. Great spot for a night or two while exploring the national park. - Nathan

It is hard to rate this campground, because other than a good level campsites with a picnic table, there are no facilities such as electric, water or dump. However the price is right - free! The campground is situated so one can enter the North entrance of Petrified Wood National Park, tour the park with a RV, pulling a toad, and exit via the South entrance and within less than a mile, boondock at Crystal Forest Gift Shop Campground, at no cost. That can make a pleasant and rewarding day. - hoppytoad

Very convenient for seeing Petrified Forest National Park. Short-term spaces are close together but rigs are staggered at opposite ends of long spaces so they have a bit more space between them. Certainly adequate for short stays. Clean campground, very easy in and out, very nice person in office. Good wifi. Convenient to I-40 but far enough not to hear it. Would definitely stay again. - all4pets

Excellent park. Level gravel sites, excellent bath rooms and showers, same with laundry. Management couldn't have been more professional and pleasant. Great location and quiet. Highly recommended. A+++ - User3369

Right off the freeway but not too noisy inside motorhome. Site was big enough for our 40 foot motorhome but was uneven. Small place to get breakfast and dinner. If you have pets, this is not the place for you. The only place they have for pets is plain dirt and the area is covered in prickly burs. There is no grassy area even on the outside area of the park. Water pressure was low at 40psi. - EggerMar

No frills campground in the middle of the desert makes a good jumping-off spot for nearby Petrified Forest and Painted Hills national parks. Meteor Crater, AZ, is an easy hour to the West. Helpful staff, free coffee and muffins most mornings. Abundant trees exist only because of daily irrigation. - Mtmoi

Stayed at GC for one night while traveling east. We travel in a 44ft MH towing a car and the CG was very easy off and on the highway and had wide internal roads that were paved. Sites are dirt and although they look level there is a slight slope to some of them. We could not level the coach on our first assigned site but the office gladly changed it for us and second site was fine. Sites are narrow but next door camper is headed in the opposite direction so it is a bit more private than one would think. Wifi worked well at times and slow at others. Cell service good. Grounds are a bit prickly with stickers and pickers that made walking the dog a bit tricky. No frills campground but good for an overnight stay. We would stay here again. - LvR

This park offers long level pull-through gravel sites. Mature trees offer shade at some sites. Basic utilities and wi-fi worked well. AT&T phone and data signals were available in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful with information about the area. Occasional train whistles can be heard. The park is easy to access from the highway making it very good for short stops. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We would be happy to stay here again. - never settled
