Camping Reservations Information
Unplug and Get Outside
Lying beneath a starry canopy and drifting off to the sound of nature is just one draw to camping in Colorado. Breathtaking natural beauty, few bugs and the abundance of outdoor activities at your fingertips make the Centennial State one of the nation’s most popular places to camp.
Colorado's state parks manage more than 4,000 campsites throughout the state. We have everything from backcountry sites for those who desire seclusion to full-hookup sites with individual pressurized water, sewer and electrical connections.

Certain parks feature group camping areas, which are ideal for field trips, family reunions and other group activities. To reserve a group facility, contact the park office of your choice.
Customers booking their reservation online or by call center for multiple sites will need to provide a primary occupant for each site. Each primary occupant must be over 18 years of age and have an account in the system. The customer making the reservation will need the primary occupant’s CID in order to make the reservation.
For customers who need to make reservations for multiple sites such as Boy Scout groups, family reunions, schools, etc where the exact primary occupant may not be known for each site, they will need to contact the park directly.
Our knowledgeable reservation agents can help you find the best spot for your visit whether you want to stay in a cabin, yurt, tent, camper, trailer or RV. Reservations can be made
