    Crystal Ridge RV Park has 24 campsites with utilities, multiple primitive campsites and one tiny cabin rental (a second tiny cabin is being prepared). Our bath house and laundry were completely remodeled in 2021. Electric was upgraded to 30/50 amp for every campsite in 2022. Quiet hours are observed from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am every day. Please note: We love pets, however; we strictly enforce pets being leashed, under owner control at all times and picking up your pet's waste. One warning is given. Eviction will result if your pet is loose again. We ask your cooperation in educating your children about this rule so they are diligent about confining/leashing the pet prior to opening the door to your recreational vehicle.

    Motor Home, Travel Trailer, Truck With Camper Top, Converted Van and Tent campsites are available for nightly rental. We do not offer permanent/residential rental. We are also known as Coleman RV Park and Ron Coleman Mine Campground

    Family activities are just a short walk away, yet, conveniently located on Ron Coleman Crystal Mine property. Dig your own quartz crystals in our 4 acre digging area, zip line 1/4 mile over our commercial mine, take a crystal mine tour and browse quartz crystal points and clusters hand dug at our quartz mine, globally sourced minerals and gifts in the expansive Ron Coleman Gift Shop and on our back porch
