This program is a partnership with Colorado State Library, local library systems, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife and meant to encourage Coloradans to visit our State Parks and experience all of the great recreation that this state has to offer.
Starting October 1st, eight libraries across the state received two "Check Out State Parks" passes, each for distribution with a backpack containing maps, brochures, binoculars, and other materials to library patrons. The first eight libraries are part of a pilot program that will run Oct 1, 2015 - May 15, 2016. Pending a positive response to the program, CPW and the State Libraries intend to launch a statewide program sometime in late June, 2016. Please check back for more information at that time.
Hike or bike the multi-use trails, find wildlife in their natural surroundings, visit a nature center or bring a picnic. With a license or camping reservation, you can try fishing or camp out overnight.
To plan your trip, use the parks brochure or park finder.
