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.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Jekyll Island (about 35 mi away) and St. Mary's (most shops closed on Mondays).

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.

We only knew of 30amp sites, 50amp maybe for Hosts? Nice State Park, modern, spacious sites, clean, and well kept. Park boarders river and has a boat ramp, picnic areas. and big cottages for rent. 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.

This state park offered the nicest sites of any we have visited in several states. I base that opinion on our desire for screening and space. All the sites are heavily screened from each other and all are perfectly clean, large, and well groomed. We camped in February, and so gnats weren't an issue. Hiking trails weren't extensive, but there is a large recreation/open area on the river bluff that offers a good place to enjoy open air. We are not off-road bicyclists and so we enjoyed the flat residential streets that are nearby and are quiet. The only reason I gave a 9 instead of 10 is that the sites lack sewer hookup. While we really love the campground nearby on Jekyll Island, this campground was superior--the surrounding area just doesn't offer the sights and bike paths that Jekyll does. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

It is all relative. Nothing here to complain about. Ranger programs, nice bike trails, big sites. Like most state parks, this is not a resort, but is a nice campground. Will stay here again. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate does not reflect $5 additional charge for park usage - you pay this one time a visit unless you have a Georgia State Parks pass. Fabulous campground! Each site can site 50' MH (although some are difficult to maneuver into with a FW) and have 30-amp electric, water and cable. Verizon 3G is pretty good here. Washrooms have free, hot showers with good water pressure and there is a washer & dryer available as well. Lots of trees, yet fairly open campground. Nice, nice, nice staff. There is a dump before you get to the campground, however needs be be accessed when leaving the campground. We love it here and will definitely stay again. If there were sewer hook-ups, we'd give it a 10. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
