Volunteer at Crawford State Park in Colorado

Has anyone ever volunteered at Crawford State Park in Colorado? I'm particularly interested in how it is to work as a Camp Host or ANS there. Working conditions, how many hours, the area near here, etc.

Any one have any ideas on the best route to get to Crawford from the south east? Will be coming out of Florida, through Memphis (to see family). I'm particularly interested in going from I25 north. MS Streets and trips routes me on SR 69 to US 50, then catch SR 92 north of Crawford and head south (Catching SR 92 south of Crawford goes through about 20 miles of wild, rough, difficult and sometimes bad roads) I am driving a 45 foot DP with toad. Wondering if the 100 miles extra out of Denver is worth taking rather than 69 to 50???

This looks like beautiful country but I'm concerned about the roads we will be traveling. Comments please.

Can't tell you much about camp hosting there, but we have camped there and is a nice little state park. We drove from 50 going north on 92 with our 40' and toad without a problem, some tight turns but take it slow and easy and your fine. 92 was paved all the way and don't think it would be worth going thru Denver and the extra miles.

Should not be a problem, really pretty drive up 92. We did it and we were newbies at the time.

Thanks for the info. Between you and several others elsewhere my bad feelings have been eased. At this point all my questions have been answered and I would consider this thread answered and closed. Thanks again.

Double charge

We quit going to CO. State parks, they charge double if you tow a car, but don't if you tow a trailer.

Not true. You just get a free sticker for your toad when you arrive and come and go as you please while staying at the park. We have stayed at almost every state park in Colorado and same for all. Thanks,

I had quite a discussion with the park ranger. No free sticker. This was a few years ago. If they changed their policy, that would be great.

We have stayed at a couple CO state parks, one gave us a free card for the car, the next on did not. We just broke down and got a yearly pass for the car. Just looked it up on the CO state parks page. Tow car dosen't need a sticker, however your MH does. Make any sense to anyone????? Not to me.

We quit going to CO. 3 or 4 years ago because of their tow car rule, I complained to everyone I could,even wrote to the tourist office, because everyone has to tow something.
