“Very nice park. The maintenance man stopped by to chat within a few minutes of our arrival and was friendly and helpful”

A great little park in a struggling town. They have really stepped up their game with this park.

New 20/30/50 amp service pedestals (free!), shade, water, a dump station, 4 dead level sites with electric and more sites without electric.

Crawford is not in good shape economically, but the people are nice and you can tell they are working hard to appeal to people, though they might not be excited to have more people around. A bit of a paradox.

The park is very well kept and they have events often, including a powwow while we were there and a fiddle contest the week after. There are two playgrounds, restrooms, a basketball and tennis court (though we didn't find a tennis court net), a volleyball court (with a net!), a nice foot bridge, and not too many flying pests. There are horses next door that you can't see but they do increase the flies. A few rolls of fly paper from the hardware store and that was solved.

The hardware store, and the rest of the core of the town, is a few blocks away from the park. There's a small market, post office, local honey store, a few restaurants, and a package liquor store. The rules on the park sign specify no alcohol. We assumed they meant outside if the RV. ;)

Verizon 4G LTE is crazy strong here, we had 4 bars without the booster. With the booster, all 5 bars. See photo of Network Cell Lite app. There are no over-the-air TV signals available here either with our powered antenna or our mast-mounted directional antenna 14' up off the ground. Plenty of cellular data speed for HD video streaming, though.

The 3 day limit is reportedly enforced, but you can ask for an extension. Mike the maintenance guy suggests you ask before the sheriff shows up...

One note on access - there are three stone pillars at the end of main street/entrance to the park. If your rig weighs more than three tons, you can't use that entrance. Waze can take you around to come in the other way.

Oh, and there are 100 trains a day (we are told, but we didn't count) that go through the rail yard next door. Didn't bother us much, especially with the windows shut and the fan from the AC unit blowing. :)

Crawford City is a no frills self contained location. About 10 spots towards the back of the park. Parking is on the grass with one exception of a long pull through site on the northeast corner. I did see water spigots but don’t know if they have water.

Three day limit but not sure it is enforced.

There is an RV dump site located at the north end of the park.

Verizon was 3 bars, 29/14 mpbs down/up.

Some noise from the coal trains.

Park is close to Fort Robinson State Park which has lots of history and things to do for the family.
