Nice state park with boat ramp on the Crooked River. Mostly empty campground in early August with good paved roads and some pull-thrus.

Park includes marked kayak trails on Crooked River with mini golf and a playground for kids. Our site had great views of the river at sunset. Sites are treed, but we managed to get satellite reception which was good as the normal cable was knocked out by an earlier storm. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check in at the bait shop at the boat ramp for fishing and kayaking advice as the tides greatly affect both.

We really enjoyed this beautiful park and campground, and hope to return. At first we expect to be assigned a spot, so found the whole "select your own" a bit daunting. But, shortly we found a very nice site, in fact I think they are all pretty nice. The bathrooms were very nice. We were surprised to see a State Park with Cable TV, the disappointed that the system was not working. We enjoyed the great birding and the trails. We were disappointed that the Nature Center was closed during our two day visit, and that no one on the staff could help us with tree identification. We found the electric and water to work quite well for us. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is truly a disappointment for a Georgia state park, most are just outstanding. There is a minimum 2 night stay at this park. The sites are all huge and will fit the biggest rigs. It's quiet and clean. This is a typical state park where you can only reserve a campsite TYPE, not any particular site. That's a first come first serve. The bad part is that the water pressure was low and the electric was weak, at times dangerously low. The infrastructure needs work. Use caution when hooking up and using electric, it could damage your electrical system. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. Great walking trails. Sites are spaced far enough apart that you have your "space". Our site had a view of the river and salt marsh -- great! Will definitely be back. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

They have a few 50 amp sites, but are 1st come-1st served, so we had to take a 30 amp. We managed, but not ideal. No sewer hookup, which we prefer, but again, is manageable. Has a dump station. Did have cable, which was nice. No Wi-Fi. Lots of space between sites, and plenty of parking for toad and visitors. Very nice ambiance with the woods and the river. Tons of space to ride bikes and walk the dog. All-in-all, with the above-mentioned shortcomings, it was a very nice, clean state park. We stayed here for a family reunion. The rest of the family stayed in cabins, which were very nice. We would stay here again. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Another great Georgia State Park. It is a nonspecific reservation so you can drive around until you find a site that suits you. I was surprised that 75% of the sites had cable. We found a nice, large pull-through with lots of privacy and enjoyed our stay here very much. My only complaint was no Wi-Fi . We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here during the week and there were very few people in the campsites. The campsites are all flat (unpaved) with a paved access road. The sites are large with lots of spacing between sites. Where we were located (14) there was cable at our site and surrounding sites in addition to water and 30 amp power. Lots of pine trees but a very wide open feeling. There are lots of nice trails for hiking, putt-putt golf, boat launch and fishing areas.

The bath houses were clean, with lots of hot water. There was a washer-dryer but they were out of order. The check in was easy, but the one drawback I would offer is that you cannot make reservations for particular sites. Over the air TV got 8 channels from Jacksonville, Verizon LTE had 4 bars.

This is a very nice, clean park that we we'll be coming back to. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground. The sites are huge, level and with plenty of shade. Surface is mostly pine needles. Each site has a table, water, electric and fire ring. Restrooms are modern and clean. It's a little far from I95 (20 min) for an overnight but great for a few days' stay. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a quick overnight stay for us. We didn't even disconnect. Trails were a nice feature. Our site was relatively level, but I noticed a few that would have required some effort to be on level ground. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in a huge site #9 across from the street from the Crooked River. The river is actually fairly far away, but you can see it. Lots of hiking, bicycling, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking for the avid outdoors folk. All sites are grass and/or dirt but most are completely level. We had a great time during our stay and the only issue was the extended period of high winds of about 30 mph. As most will know that's not the parks fault. We have stayed at this park in the past and never fails to make us happy. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Very few 50 amp sites, washrooms are dated and in need of a refresh. No Wi-Fi at our site, cable TV poor. Fishing close by. Some sites with dense foliage and privacy. Lots to see and do in the area. We went to the office to add an extra day and were not given a new tag for our site. We got a very unfriendly visit from an officer demanding an explanation. I assured him we had paid and asked him to check with the office. He clearly did not believe us, demanded our receipt, and waited until we found it. I have no doubt we would have been evicted if we were unable to find our receipt. We will visit again, hopefully after this officer has been pensioned off or transferred to a position with no contact with the public. A beautiful campground with horribly unfriendly staff. Our rig is 35 feet long. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely and well maintained State Park, lots of space between RVs, sites wide and long, enough space for a towed so no need to unhook if you are here for just one night. Very quiet with plenty of shade trees, so privacy and shade in the summer heat. Barbecue and picnic table. Bathrooms are old but clean, and there are a couple of washers and dryers located outside the bathrooms. Water and electric but no sewer. There is a security gate that closes at 10 PM each  night, and you are issued a gate code. Pet friendly and plenty of trails to walk your pets. No Wi-Fi or cell. Lots of food stores (Publix) and places to eat in St Mary's, and plenty of sightseeing close by. We would stay here again.  We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice staff in office and wifi there as well. We liked this park although it was not really close to anything that we wanted to see. Still, we would return if through the area again. Nice bathrooms. Laundry machine was in outside, covered porch area of bathroom building and worked fine. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Great meeting place for families with and without RV's. We would stay here again! We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice, large level sites with a picnic table. I only saw 30 amp electric but it was fine for our 3 night stay. A lot of trails, with some bird feeding sites and very peaceful surroundings. No planes, trains, or automobiles. My Sprint phone & Verizon Mi-Fi did work here though it was not an exceptionally strong signal. The office people and hosts were very helpful & friendly. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.
