​Lory State Park​ 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.

  • ​There will no longer be a reservation fee for reservations made in advance. A parks pass is required in addition to camping fees.
