Admission to State Parks is Free Today

DENVER (AP) – Admission to state parks is free Monday, August 5  in Colorado’s annual tradition to mark its anniversary of statehood.

The state’s 42 state parks will still charge camping fees, but admission is free on Monday.

It will be a first “free day” for the state’s newest park, Staunton State Park near Pine. The park opened in May.

Colorado became a state on Aug. 1, 1876, under President Ulysses S. Grant.
