I rated this high, because of the activities, wilderness, and beauty around Crawford and the food and the availability of the campground when all else is closed, made it worth it. Also, you can use the Dairy Sweety's rest room, WiFi and the close proximity to the highway, and a convenient store all must count for something. But as a campsite itself, it has hookups and is affordable, otherwise it is a parking area behind a Cafe.
Crawford has so much going for it. We went to camp and catch trout. Unfortunately, due to COVID and wet weather, even grassland boondocking was forbidden. A local pointed us to the dairy sweet. Behind the Dairy sweet she has 4 hookups and room for about 6 campers. We set up late and just got food there- WOW!
This is one of those places that aren't anything to look at but put amazing food on your plate! The beef is locally raised. The Ruben I had had thick slabs of corned beef they process themselves. The BBQ I had on my last day could have fed a small village.
While their visit Fort Rob, but don't miss Sowbelly Canyon, Toadstool SP, and the Museum of the Fir Trader in Neighboring Chadron. AND if you can, enter Crawford from the South, you will be glad you did.
One of my favorite towns in Nebraska is Harrison. It is the largest town in Sioux County which is itself larger than the state of Delaware. Do you want to guess the second largest town in Sioux? There is no other town in Sioux County! That is how remote this area is…enjoy.
