Colorado Parks and Wildlife extends camping ban into May

Colorado Parks and Wildlife announced that it has extended its camping ban at state parks and wildlife areas until May 4, warning that the ban could be extended again due to the coronavirus outbreak.

CPW said it is following Gov. Jared Polis’ Safer at Home order, as well as the advice of both the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

People with reservations that have been canceled have been given an automatic refund.
