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 1930's. There are two recorded archaeological sites within the park's boundaries, including remnants of a 19th-century U. S. military outpost. An interpretive 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 seven campgrounds with 74 water/electric utility campsites and 425 primitive campsites, two boat ramps, two bathhouses, and a swimming beach. Sand volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, and a playground offer more recreational opportunities. Food, fuel and convenience items are available at the full-service marina and restaurant located within the park.

Anglers enjoy excellent fishing for channel catfish, crappie, and striped bass. Pleasure boating and scuba diving are among favorite recreational pursuits.

Located on the edge of the Ozarks, Crawford State Park illustrates the variety of landscapes available in Kansas state parks. Redbud trees offer spectacular beauty in spring, and the lush foliage of the surrounding forest is a naturalist's delight.
