Members of the public interested in receiving updates about the visitor use management planning process can sign up for that here.
Eldorado Canyon State Park has experienced increasing visitation and reaches maximum vehicle capacity much of the year, especially during summer weekends and holidays. Illegal parking on the surrounding roads and traffic congestion are impeding traffic flow for emergency services and nearby residents.
The Visitor Use Management Plan will focus on providing for and managing visitor use to protect resources and enhance visitor experiences. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
