Parks Pass Fees are Changing in 2019
With the passage of Senate Bill 18-143, CPW is able to adjust pricing to meet the pressures of increased management costs and resource usage across the state. These adjustments allow the agency to continue our conservation mission, while also ensuring transparency and accountability in working to achieve the ten key goals laid out in the bill.

2019 Park Pass Updates
Annual Hangtag Passes
2019 brings a new annual hangtag pass option.
New annual hangtag passes are associated with an individual purchaser instead of a vehicle. This means that the hangtag pass can be moved between vehicles as long as the pass holder is present.
Clear, recyclable hangtags are available at all 41 state parks and all CPW offices. If you purchase your pass online or at other license agents, you can pick up your hang tag on your first park visit.
Annual Hang Tag Pass - $120 per person
New for 2019, these passes are associated with an individual purchaser instead of a vehicle, which means that the hangtag pass can be moved between vehicles as long as the pass holder is present.
Hang tag passes are available for purchase:
If you purchase your pass online or at license agents, you can pick up your hang tag on your first park visit.
Only one lost or stolen replacement hangtag pass will be offered annually for $60, or 50% of the full pass price.
Annual Affixed Vehicle Parks Pass - $80 per vehicle
Annual passes are valid
for a 12 month period. They provide unlimited access to all Colorado State Parks during that time. Do you have more than one vehicle? Additional vehicle passes (multiple) are purchased separately and are valid the same dates as the primary Annual Park Pass.
Passes are available for purchase:
When purchasing an Annual Affixed Vehicle Parks Pass, you must provide your vehicle license plate number. If you have a temporary license plate, you must provide the last six digits of your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
Annual Multiple Pass - $40 for each additional affixed vehicle pass
Customers with a Vehicle Annual Parks Pass or an Annual Hang Tag Pass may purchase a Multiple Pass for additional vehicles registered in the same name or registered to an immediate family member (spouse or child) living at the same address, please provide
- Proof of registration with registration address on all vehicles and
- Proof of first Annual Pass purchased or receipt of original.
All multiple passes are affixed passes. Multiple Passes are valid for the same dates as the primary Annual Parks Pass. Multiple passes are
not available online. Obtain your multiple pass at any
State Park or Colorado Parks and Wildlife office or any
Authorized Sales Agent.
Annual Replacement Pass - $5 ($60 for Annual Hang Tag)
If your pass is lost or damaged, most replacement passes are $5; a replacement Annual Hang Tag pass is $60. You will be required to provide destroyed pass or show receipt from the original Annual Pass and sign an affidavit. Replacement passes are valid the same dates as the pass being replaced. Replacement passes are not available online, but can be purchased at any
State Park or CPW office.
