The town of Crawford Colorado is named after Captain George A. Crawford whose idea to start a post office in this area resulted in the growth of a town. The town of Crawford is the high-altitude beauty of the North Fork Valley. Crawford is the gateway to the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park which provides numerous outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking, biking and photography in the summer. Visit the Crawford State Park for many other outdoor sports, including hiking, fishing, biking, boating… the list goes on!
Crawford embodies the spirit of the west and the North Fork Valley. A stunning landscape to visit or to call home.
