Crawford State Park

Description

Crawford exhibits the classic features of the western slope - rugged beauty and outstanding views of geologic features like Needle Rock, surrounded by mountain valleys and expansive ranch lands. It’s easy to imagine the inspiring scenery offered by a park so close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison (North Rim). The pinyon-juniper woodlands that cover the park’s uplands are rich in plant species, such as mountain mahogany, Gambel oak, Fendlerbush, Mormon-tea, skunkbrush and Spanish bayonet. The reservoir is 400 acres and provides for great fishing, boating and watersports. Colorado Parks and Wildlife gets everyone outdoors! Attracting more than 12 million visitors per year, Colorado's 43 State Parks are a vital cornerstone of Colorado's economy and quality of life. Colorado State Parks encompass 224,447 land and water acres, offering some of the best outdoor recreation destinations in the state. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is a leader in providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, protecting the state’s favorite landscapes, teaching generations about nature and partnering with communities.
