Chatfield Camping Fee Increases for 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.
- The new fees will start January 1st, 2019.
For information on fee changes at Chatfield see the fee page, or to read more about the fee increases for the whole agency see the 2019 Pricing Adjustments page.
