Sometimes I feel a little guilty. We use our State Parks pass so often that I wonder if they are losing money on us. Some of you have surely heard me brag about Chatfield State Park in the past, and I do take the kids every few weeks in the summer to swim at the beach there. We also take spur-of-the-moment picnics, hike at Roxborough, camp at Golden Gate, and have many more state parks to cross off our "to do" list.
- There are over 50 state parks in Colorado.
- Parks offer activities like: boating, biking, hot-air ballooning, ice skating, swimming, gold panning, fishing and so much more!
- Parks passes are only $60 annually and can be purchased at any park.
- You can also purchase passes at REI, King Soopers, Safeway, Gander Mountain, and Sportsmans Warehouse stores.
- You can make reservations online for camping all year long (some parks are summer only camping).
- You can apply to be a volunteer at any state park on their website.
