Friends of Staunton State Park
Our mission is working in partnership with others to preserve, promote, and protect the wildlife, natural beauty and historic legacy of Staunton State Park for current and future generations.

Staunton State Park is Colorado's 42nd and newest State Park. Only about 30 minutes from the Denver Metro-Area; Staunton opened its doors May 18, 2013 to a fanfare of patrons, guests and excited volunteers. Friends of Staunton State Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to raise funds for and provide sustainable growth to the ever-changing facilities at Staunton State Park. It is operated by a Board of Directors who are actively looking to increase our membership, promote growth and involvement as well as raise funds for the park and its future amenities and attractions.

All funds donated to the Friends of Staunton State Park are spent on the park; you can see our accomplishments listed on our website. We would love for you to become a member or a volunteer!

Have you seen this video about our park?! Narrating is Jen Anderson, our former Park Manager, who guided its opening. With the help of countless wonderful volunteers, the initial generous donation of land to the state by Frances Staunton, and many other wonderful people and organizations giving time, land, and funds, especially Colorado Lottery and Great Outdoors Colorado - GOCO contributing over 11 million dollars, Colorado's newest state park has been operating for 3 years for all to visit!
The Davis Ponds have changed quite a bit, and we now have more trails, but the splendid untouched nature remains the same. Enjoy!
