Positives about this RV Park: 1) Great location off the main highways with minimal traffic noise. 2) Clean, well-maintained, widely spaced, nearly level RV sites. 3) Clean and well-maintained shower and restroom facilities. Negatives about this RV park: 1) Minimal cell phone service. AT&T had no service; Verizon had barely minimal service. 2) Too bad State rules allow you to stay only 2 weeks at a time; otherwise we would still be there. We will be back at Crawford State Park again! Loved it! We camped at Crawford State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Park is located about 10 miles from the North Rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison. There are several pull-through sites along the lakeshore that we highly recommend. Check out the site map and look at sites #22 thru #37. About 12 miles to drive into Hotchkiss for groceries, gas, hardware, etc. The one gas station in Crawford charges 40 - 50 cents a gallon more that if you drive in to Hotchkiss, or go further into Delta.

Nice state park.... a little disappointed in the pricing... 20 for the park was a good price, but 7 for a day pass, and then another 7 for a day pass on towed vehicle was a bit much... Dump station at exit. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Truck Camper.

This review is of Clear Fork Campground which does not have hook ups but does have much larger campsites and less traffic than its neighbor Iron Creek which has hookups and smaller sites. Both campgrounds are about the same size but there are only 21 sites in Clear Creek. There are flush toilets, showers and water at Clear Fork. This campground is used mostly by tenters, however there are at least 5 sites suitable of rigs up to 35 feet. The rate of $13 was with an Aspen Senior Pass and includes a $3 a night discount for Sunday-Thursday camping. There were 3 or 4 good sized RVs in the Clear Fork campground. They were over nighters. The price makes this a great place if you are just passing thru. I have in the past camped with my trailer at Iron Creek BUT if I come back I think I would opt for Clear Creek even with my trailer due to the better views, larger sites and privacy. Unless you fish or boat Crawford SP doesn't offer a lot of activity in the area. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Tent.

Good hiking at the nearby north rim of the Black Canyon. It's an all day trip to the south rim and most popular area of the Black Canyon. Don't expect much in the way of eating out or shopping. Tenters you will be a lot happier at Clear Fork than Iron Creek unless you like being wedged in between RV's with litttle shade or privacy.

Loved this park. No site had a bad view. Very friendly staff; incredibly helpful with information and ideas for our family vacation. Wish there was sewer, but it's worth it for the view and roomy sites. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The views of the mountains, the lake and the night star-studded sky made this a excellent choice for a weekend getaway! On top of that, the sites were level, clean and the folks at the front entrance made us feel right at home. We will be back! We camped at Crawford State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Iron Creek Campground which is the only campground with electric hook ups at this state park. Clear Fork Campground does not have hook ups. Nice state park with great facilities. Large sites, level, with a nice sun shelter and picnic table. The power was at a steady 120 volts and water was around 45 psi. Nothing in the park to hinder your satellite TV. They no longer charge for your tow car as long as you towed it into the park. The park day pass or an annual park pass can be purchased at the park office located between the town of Crawford and Clear Fork Campground. No Verizon cell or aircard here, but if you go up to the library in town you can get a signal for both. The library also has their own Wi-Fi that you can use inside or outside the building 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. If you need to use a computer they have 6 new computers that you can use. There are 2 small food stores but we chose to go to City Market in Hotchkiss which is about 12 miles from the park. The dump station is located near the exit of the park. We enjoyed the peace and quiet with the beautiful views and would return again if in the area. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very scenic park with a view of the water. I do not believe in our section there were any waterfront sites, only water view. Our problem was lack of cell phone service. We use Verizon which says they have service there, but everyone there knows that they do not. Sprint was the only service and it was apparently very spotty. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice State Park RV campground! The sites are very well kept, level, and properly equipped. The location is great and close to several attractions. The State Park employees were very helpful and always had a smile. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground, we camped here in a fifth wheel with slides on both sides. Most of the sites would have been large enough for us. Fishing was good, trout and pike. A nice walking path and visitor center. Small store down the road if you need anything. Beautiful views of the farm land and mountains. Close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the Colorado National Mounument. We stayed here for 10 days. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is more than one campground in this park. This review applies to Iron Creek which has the hookups. I think there are 45 sites. All sites are spacious. Many of the sites have 50 amp. Some have shade canopys over the tables. My favorite sites are # 41 and 22. If you have a boat and want to beach it near your site you could consider #24 and #26. Good fishing lake. Fabulous camp host at #14 who keeps an eye on things without being over present. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a clean, very well-kept campground. There's no shade unless you are lucky enough to reserve a site with table shelter. Town is close for those "forgotten" items. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Tent Trailer.
