Reserve your campsite now as camping season approaches! With the recent stretch of unseasonably warm weather in Colorado, we are reminded that camping season is just around the corner. Though it may be a couple of months before most campers get out into the beautiful Colorado wilderness, it is not too early to start planning your camping season trips or reserve campsites! In fact, many campgrounds are already taking camping reservations. If you already know where you want to go camping this season, you might want to check your favorite campground and reserve your favorite campsite now.
The normal camping season in Colorado is Memorial Day through Labor Day. Most campgrounds only take reservations during this time frame. If you plan to go camping outside of this time frame it is still a good idea to check if your favorite campground takes reservations.

Here are some things to keep in mind when reserving a camping trip:
- The busiest times in a campground are Friday through Sunday.
- Most campgrounds require reserving both Friday and Saturday nights if you want a Friday night.
- Double check campsite size and accommodations to be sure they fit your needs such as power, water, size, and accessibility.
- The number of people and vehicles may be limited in the campsite.
- Make sure to familiarize yourself with campground rules before you go. Check to see if pets are allowed, ATVs are allowed, and if other outdoor activities you may be interested in are available.
After you have your camping vacation resesrved, you may also want to investigate points of interest and other activities in the vicinity of your campground. This way you can have a good backup plan should you have the misfortune of a bad weather day. This is a great way to save what would otherwise be a “bad day camping”.
You may be months away from actually going camping, but it is the perfect time to reserve your camping trip. Perhaps talk to your friends and family to see if they would be interested in joining your camping trip. Getting your camping trip all lined up and reserved early will help you get the campsite you want and schedule the time off work so everyone can go camping!
