COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials have announced all playground, campgrounds, camping and camping facilities at the state parks will remain shutdown under the safer-at-home order.

Along with these closures, CPW said they are not allowing any camping at State Wildlife Areas to help fight the spread of COVID-19.

These closures have been in effect since March 26 based off the initial stay-at-home order issued by the state, according to CPW.

Right now, the campgrounds are the only areas closed. Parks, trails, boat ramps, marinas and shorelines are still open.

Park managers have the authority to decide if areas, such as picnic areas or other "concentrated recreation areas," will be closed if they do not allow for social distancing.
