Colorado Parks and Wildlife will celebrate Colorado Day, Monday, August 7 by offering free entrance at all 41 state parks. Free entrance at the state parks is an annual Colorado Day tradition. Although the state celebrated its 141 birthday August 1, state parks are only offering free entrance on August 7.

"Colorado Day is an opportunity for everyone to get outside and experience the diverse natural beauty and recreational activities that all of the 41 state parks have to offer," said Gary Thorson, assistant director for information and education for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "This day is also the agency's opportunity to say 'thank you' to all of our residents and visitors who enjoy our state parks for their continued support."

All other fees, including camping and reservations will remain in effect on August 7.

Come play all day, enjoy a picnic and stay for the sunset. This Colorado Day, be sure to get out to a state park for a fun-filled day that the whole family can enjoy.
