This place has not been kept up very well probably due to funding. The scenery is beautiful and is a must see; however, it does look pretty scary in some parts due to lack of care. The restroom aren't very clean as well but at least the plumbing works.
Crowders is a great place to spend the day or even a few hours. The scenery is beautiful and everyone is really friendly. The trails are maintained and kept clean with easy use of blazes. This is a good place for a family or solo hike. There is a trail for everyone so you will find something that fits just right for you.
