Situated on the West Elk Loop Scenic & Historic Byway, this small artisan community is the gateway to the North Rim in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, located 15 miles south of town. At this stunning park, sheer black cliffs sandwich the Gunnison River, which rages thousands of feet below. Nearby, Crawford State Park offers camping, boating and fishing, and U.S. Forest Service access roads wind into the West Elk Mountain range, an ideal area for hunting and fishing.

Crawford affords splendid views of Needle Rock, a distinctive volcanic landmark rising out of the West Elk mountain range, three miles east of town. Famed rocker Joe Cocker visited Crawford and lived in the southwestern community until his death in 2014.
