Staunton State Park is pleased to announce the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website is now accepting reservations for individual campsites in our new hike-in campgrounds. Volunteers and staff members have been working diligently to ensure the campgrounds are ready and customer service is the highest priority. We are now eagerly anticipating the transition to overnight camping.

Beginning July 1, 2018, Staunton State Park will begin a new chapter in our history by offering our guests tent camping opportunities. Staunton State Park has three hike-in campgrounds with a total of 25 campsites. All sites have a large flat area for a tent, a large lockable bear box for your food & possessions and a large picnic table. Small campstoves with an on/off switch to control the flame are permitted. Open fires, in any form, are prohibited at all times within Staunton State Park.

The link for the on-line reservation system is: www.cpwshop.com/camping/staunton-state-p...parkID=56101&media=3

Reserve your campsite quickly as we expect them to be booked now that they are available online. The reservation link (above) has all the information you’ll need, including a map of the three campgrounds and locations of the individual campsites.

We’re looking forward to seeing you tent camping at Staunton State Park!

From Staunton State Park...book your camping spot for the best viewing of the fall leaves, and enjoy a short hike to participate in their programs this month!


Did you know...
Aspen is one of our state’s most extensive forest types, covering 5 million acres or 20 percent of the our forested land. Aspen are Colorado’s only widespread, native, deciduous tree and can be found from 6,500 to 11,500 feet in elevation.

In the next three weeks Staunton State Park’s vast number of aspens will be transitioning to their fall colors. What better place to pitch a tent and camp than among aspens in Staunton State Park's three campgrounds?

The Aspen Campground is located in a splendid grassy meadow with plentiful numbers of aspen trees. You can camp alongside or atop a granite Rocky Mountain outcrop among towering blue spruce trees and a sprinkle of aspens in the Spruce Campground. How about waking up in a meadow with mixed ponderosa and aspens in the popular Ponderosa Campground.

All of Staunton State Park’s campsites are spaced nicely for privacy, offer a large flat camping pad with a picnic table and large bear proof box. We expect the 25 hike-in tent sites to book up fast, so make your reservation now: cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/Staunton/Pages/Camping.aspx
