​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is close by, so it’s easy to imagine the inspiring scenery found here. Crawford State Park invites anglers, boaters, hikers and water sports enthusiasts to the western slope, for one day or several.

Jet skiing, motor boating and water skiing are very popular action-oriented activities at peak times like summer weekends. The park is quiet and restful during the week and lower peak times.

A nice retreat for outdoor recreation, groups are welcome to gather and enjoy the group picnic facility. Crawford is a great place to take a break and enjoy great recreation and stunning scenery.

Colorado State Parks in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation recently refurbished and added modern campground amenities to the park.
