Camping 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 ou​t in the bill. ​​​​​​​​​​​​

Camping fees are changing on January 1, 2019. Learn more about the approved 2019 camping fe​e adjustments​​ and visit our ​​Future Generations Act Frequently Asked Questions​ page for additional information.


A $10 fee will be applied per reservation. This reservation fee is non-refundable.

A $6 fee will be applied for each change made per reservation. This change fee is non-refundable.

​Camping Fees

  • Full campground hookup $28 per night
  • Electrical campground $24 per night
  • Basic campground $18 per night

An additional $2 per night will be charged from May 1 - Sept. 30 for these parks.  Chatfield, Cherry Creek, Cheyenne Mt., Golden Gate, Highline, Mueller, Pearl Lake, Rifle Falls, Ridgway, St. Vrain, Steamboat Lake, and Sylvan Lake.

Note: Chatfield’s D Loop can be reserved year-round. However, water hookups are turned off from approximately November 1 to April 15 at all campsites​. Though the system may show sites as full hookup, there are no water hookups available, and fees are adjusted to the rate of an electrical campsite. Please be aware of this when making reservations. More information is available on the Chatfield State Park camping page.​

Vehicle Entrance Fees

Camping fees do not include vehicle entrance fees.  If a vehicle does not have an annual pass, then a daily entrance fee will be charged.

For more detailed information, visit the camping page of the park you plan to visit.
