Always wanted to check out Colorado’s 42 state parks? Now you can. We're excited to now offer Colorado State Parks passes through our Culture Pass and Lucky Day program. You can read the nitty gritty details on how the passes work and how you can get your hands on them, but here’s what you need to know:
- Valid for all 42 Colorado state parks (Does not include national parks or national monuments)
- Allows free entry for one carload
- Does not include camping or fishing fees
Inside the backpack, you’ll find the entry pass; binoculars; Colorado wildlife, trees and wildflowers laminated guides; Guide to Your 42 State Parks; Leave No TraceTM card; activity ideas list; and an evaluation form.
JCPL, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Colorado Department of Education and the State Library are pleased to partner in bringing the Check Out Colorado State Parks program to 286 libraries throughout Colorado.
In case you’re wondering what’s behind this program, it not only provides tremendous learning experiences and encourages healthy activities, it gives everyone the opportunity to experience Colorado’s amazing state parks and all they have to offer.
We expect these passes to be popular, but don’t despair. We’ve set it up so some are reserveable online and they’re also available as Lucky Day items on a first-come, first-available basis.
We'd love to see your photos in the parks - share it on Instagram @jeffcolibrary #CheckoutColorado.
