Colorado was granted as a state in 1876. In commemoration of Colorado Day and the state’s 146th birthday, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering free entry to all 42 state parks on Monday, August 1. 

“Coloradans have a rich tradition of embracing an outdoor lifestyle,” explained Statewide Public Information Officer Bridget O’Rourke Kochel.

“Our state parks offer a variety of outdoor activities that people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy.”

Free admission to all state parks provides various outdoor recreation activities that Coloradans can enjoy, including water sports, wildlife and wildflower viewing, rock climbing, stargazing, and geocaching.

Other park fees remain in effect, including camping reservations, hunting and fishing licenses, and boat and off-highway vehicle registrations.

Park visitors are reminded and encouraged to follow outdoor safety tips and Leave No Trace principles.

  • Know Before You Go – Check water temperatures, weather conditions, and trail closures in areas you plan to visit.
  • Wear a Life Jacket – Regardless of age or experience level, cold water can quickly create a drowning emergency.
  • Be Careful with Fire – Become aware of fire restrictions and bans before you go and avoid driving on dry grass.
  • Be Bear Aware – Keep dogs leashed at all times, and remain bear aware when camping and on trails.
  • Dispose of Waste Properly – Pick up all trash, dog waste bags, and food waste. Throw it away in a trash can or pack it out of the park when a trash can is full or unavailable.
  • All other park fees remain in effect, including camping reservations, hunting and fishing licenses, and boat and off-highway vehicle registrations.
