Colorado Parks and Wildlife is extending campground closures until further notice. In this unprecedented time unprecedented actions need to be taken. Camping reservations are being refunded through May 11.
Please follow their recommendations and stay safe. It is so important that we all stay safe and practice good social distancing as well as wearing masks and gloves when appropriate.
If you are just absolutely itching to camp, toss the tent out in the backyard! Turn the situation into a fun family backyard camping experience instead of lamenting not being able to go to your favorite campground. This can also give you a great oppertunity to clean out and check you gear so it will be ready to go as soon as it’s safe to go camping again.
Update from Colorado Parks and Wildlife
Update May 4, 2020: Colorado Parks and Wildlife campgrounds will remain closed until further notice.

This action has been taken based on the Safer At Home Order from Colorado Governor Jared Polis and the advice of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).Reservations through May 11 have been canceled for a full refund – no action is needed by these customers.
