Colorado Parks and Wildlife suggests booking your Sate Park campsites now.

Don't wait too much longer. You may not get a spot. It will make it worth your while to plan ahead and do some of the work now.

With 40 State Parks in Colorado, you would think there would be plenty of room for everyone. But that's not the case. Especially on high profile weekends such as Memorial Day, Labor Day and July fourth. In fact, Highline Lake State Park is already booked up for Memorial Day. With James M. Robb Park not too far behind.

To find out if your favorite Colorado State Park has spots open, click here on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website for reservation information.

I usually pick the off-weekends so I don't have to worry about that. But, if you and your family are planning on camping those weekends, make preparations NOW.
