Rules to Remember in Colorado

Colorado seems like the best place on earth to go camping, but it is not without its many rules. It's many, many rules. Here's a friendly reminder to do a little research before selecting your destination because Colorado's camping rules differ from site to site. The rules may vary depending on the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Forest Service, and local regulations.

Some Colorado Camping Basics

Navigation, water purification, a fire source, and a really good flashlight are all essentials in the great outdoors. You might consider spending a few dollars to hold a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (COSAR) card. You'll be funding rescue efforts in our state that help those who have needed rescue in Colorado's vast outdoors.
