St Vrain is part of a "reservation-only" pilot program. The program has eliminated the 3-day reservation window. Camping reservations are now available 24/7 online at https://www.cpwshop.com/home.page or by phone at 1-800-244-5613. All campers must make a campsite reservation prior to occupying the site.
If a campsite is available, a walk-up customer that is prepared to occupy the campsite may still purchase/reserve the site at the entrance station. However, we recommend making a reservation before you arrive to assure you have a campsite for the night.
Check-in for campsites is at 1 p.m. and check-out is at 12 noon.
Daily or Annual vehicle permits are required on all vehicles that enter the park. These fees are in addition to the camping reservation and may be purchased at the entrance station when checking in or after hours at the self-serve kiosk.
Some campground loops close in the winter months.
