Military members and veterans can get a pass valid for free admission for the entire month. The pass is available at any state park office or Colorado Parks and Wildlife office.

To get a hang-tag pass, just show park staff proof of military service. The pass admits the service member and everyone else in the car.

While park entrance fees are waived for people with the pass, fees for activities such as camping still apply. 

The deal is only good at Colorado state parks. It does not include national parks like Rocky Mountain National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park.
