The 734-acre (2.97 km2) park was established in 1974 on the shore of Crawford Reservoir, a 400 acres (1.6 km2) lake, with boat ramps and a swimming beach. Other facilities include camp sites, picnic sites and a visitors center. The park has 1.8 miles (2.9 km) of trails available to both hikers and bicyclists. Plant communities include pinyon-juniper woodlands, sagebrush and small areas of west slope grassland. Wetland and riparian areas are around the reservoir and below the dam.
