Camping

Enjoy your time in the beautiful Colorado landscape to the fullest by camping in its many campgrounds, at backcountry campsites, state parks, National Parks, and in one of the state’s 11 National Forests. If RV-ing is more your speed, many campgrounds offer services and hook-ups for your vehicle and allow you to stay for an extended period. Sites are also most often located within range of beautiful hiking trails, rivers and lakes for fishing, and off-road trails perfect for exploring the Colorado backcountry by motor.

If you choose to camp on National Forest land, adhere to the following general rules when choosing a campsite:

  • Camping is limited to 28 days within a 60 day period.
  • No camping is allowed within 100 feet of all lakes, rivers, and developed trails.
  • Research fire restrictions before heading into the backcountry.
  • Respect private property.

In designated wilderness areas, follow Leave No Trace guidelines to maintain the integrity of the land:

  • Plan ahead and prepare route.
  • Travel and camp on durable surfaces.
  • Dispose of waste properly.
  • Leave what you find.
  • Minimize campfire impact.
  • Respect wildlife.
