COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Colorado Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than enjoy the beautiful outdoors at any state park for free?
Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering free entrance to any of our 41 state parks on Monday, August 7. Keep in mind that all other fees, including camping and reservations, will remain in effect.
Colorado Day was created by the state legislature to mark the anniversary of statehood, granted in 1876 by President Ulysses S. Grant.
Although the Centennial State's actual 141st birthday is on August 1, the free entrance offer is only valid August 7.>> Click here to find a state park near you.
