​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Camping in Colorado

Lying beneath a starry canopy and drifting off to the sound of nature is just one draw to camping in Colorado. Breathtaking natural beauty, few bugs and the abundance of outdoor activities at your fingertips make the Centennial State one of the nation’s most popular places to camp.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife manages more than 4,000 campsites throughout the state. We have everything from backcountry sites for those who desire seclusion to full-hookup sites with individual pressurized water, sewer and electrical connections.

Our parks make the perfect setting for affordable, family-friendly vacations. Weekdays offer your pick of prime campsites, cabins or yurts and allow you time to explore and discover Colorado’s diverse landscapes and attractions. 

Use our Park Finder and go to the Facilities tab to find the amenities you are seeking, since offerings vary by park and may include:
