COLORADO – Colorado Parks and Wildlife has announced it will honor all veterans and active-duty military members on Veterans Day, Nov. 11th, with free admissions to any of Colorado’s 41 state parks.

CPW said this is their way of saying thank you by giving veterans and active-duty military a chance to unwind and enjoy the wildlife and wild spaces across the state of Colorado.

“CPW is proud to offer free admission to our state parks in honor of Veterans Day to thank our veterans and military members,” said CPW Director Bob Broscheid. “We greatly appreciate the selflessness displayed by these men and women through their service.”

Military members or veterans visiting the parks on this day will have to provide proof of Military service at the park gate. Free entry extends to all passengers in the same vehicle with a qualified service member. All other park fees still apply.

Military identification methods include:

  • Military ID card

  • Applicable DD Form

  • Veterans Affairs health identification card

  • A current Colorado Driver’s License or state-issued identification card with the veteran seal printed on it
