Colorado State Parks

Woody Guthrie was right: This land really is your land. More than a third of Colorado’s 100,000 square miles belong to the people. Plan a Colorado vacation to discover your land, much of which can be found inside beautiful Colorado State Parks.


The natural beauty of the state is on full display at the numerous Colorado State Parks, from breathtaking scenery to wildlife habitats:

• Lush meadows brimming with wildflowers at Vega State Park

• The expansive view of the Continental Divide from Golden Gate Canyon State Park’s Panorama Point Scenic Overlook

• Bald eagles raising their young in the trees of Barr Lake State Park

• Red rock formations that rip unexpectedly out of the greenery of Roxborough State Park

With millions of acres of public lands, Colorado gives you lots of options and lots of room to play. Live your Colorado vacation to the fullest by exploring these parks’ year-round activities: fishing, hiking, camping, backpacking, boating, rock climbing, biking, skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, wildlife watching, taking scenic drives and so much more.

A Colorado State Parks Pass is the ticket to endless exploration of the land of Colorado!
