Colorado is giving back to active military personnel and veterans to help them enjoy this beautiful state even more.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering free park passes for the month of August to active military and veterans. CPW is encouraging everyone (who is eligible) to get their passes in advance to avoid delays at the gate. These passes can be obtained at any CPW office or start park.

In order to get one of these military hang-tag passes for the month of August, the military member or veteran must show proof of his/her service. One of the following will work:

  • Active of retired military identification
  • Veterans Affairs Medical Card
  • A current Colorado Driver’s License or state-issued identification card with the veteran seal
  • DD-214

CPW appreciates the military community and hopes this will help them enjoy the 42 state parks in Colorado.
