Colorado State Parks celebrate Colorado Day with free admission

Daily News staff report

Monday, Aug. 1 is Colorado Day, and it’s being celebrated by Colorado State Parks with free entrance at all 42 state parks.

Colorado Day was created by the state legislature to mark the anniversary of statehood, granted in 1876 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Free entrance at the state parks is an annual Colorado Day tradition.

“Colorado Day is our annual ‘thank-you’ to all our visitors for their support,” said Rick Cables, Colorado Parks and Wildlife Director. “The free day also gives people who have never visited a state park the chance to experience the great activities in state parks.”

All other fees, including camping and reservations, will remain in effect on Aug. 1.
