COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife says all 41 of Colorado's state parks are remaining open at this time.

The parks will remain open for all outdoor recreation and restrooms and public areas will continue to be cleaned and maintained, CPW said.

To discourage congregation and protect visitors and staff, visitor centers at the parks will be closed. Park offices will be restricting public access, but will remain staffed to answer visitor questions via phone or email.

CPW officers will continue to enforce park regulations and provide public safety. This includes checking valid park passes. Visitors are encouraged to purchase their parks passes and other products through drop boxes, credit card pay stations, or online at

CPW said that while the parks remain open for now, they are subject to closing upon the advice of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or local public health departments.
