Winter Visits

Colorado camping, year round Colorado camping, year round Doug Bates

Plan ahead - be prepared. The night time temperatures are cold. Indoor accommodations are typically reserved in advance. Winter campers have many choices and there is no tent site fee for tent camping October through April. Most winters, for most of the winter, there is snow on the ground. Winter campers should be prepared to clear the snow from their tent site to suit their needs. All visitors should bring good footwear, the trails can be slippery. A nice option is a good terry cloth bathrobe for wrapping up quickly as you get out of the water. The road is usually cleared but good tires make it easier to get around and provide a measure of safety as you travel on the highway. Watch the weather and check the road conditions. Winter days can be sunny and bright.
