Rich in history and spectacular scenery, Crawford State Park has a flavor all its own. This southeast Kansas treasure, located 9 miles north of Girard in Crawford County, resides on a 150-acre lake built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s.
There are two recorded archaeological sites within the parks boundaries, including remnants of a 19th-century U.S. military outpost. An interpretive trail, Deer Run Trail, connects the park with the Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks Farlington Fish Hatchery, which was built shortly after the CCC completed construction of the lake.
The 500-acre park features six campgrounds. There are 29 primitive sites, 38 electric only sites, 25 50amp/water sites, and 20 30amp/ water sites. All of the campsites have a spectacular view of the lake.
The park also offers limited reservation sites. In Rocky Cove Campground there are four RV sites that can be reserved. Lakeview Group Use area has 10 electric sites and is located at the south end of the lake. It is ideal for family reunions, club campouts, and other group activities.
