There are more than 13000 campsites in Colorado, run by private and public enterprises. They range from 'primitive', with no water or other basics, to full service, including electrical hookups, laundry and shower facilities. There are 14 million acres of state run parks covering mountains, lakes, rivers and valleys. Most public campgrounds are located at high altitudes and offer minimal support during the winter off season, which is usually from mid-October to mid-May. Pets are allowed at some venues but not where they are likely to impact on the local wildlife. The ethos of all campers in these conservation areas should be to leave no trace of their visits. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

Glaciers were largely responsible for shaping the Rocky Mountains landscape which forms part of the Continental Divide. Large tracts of land were purchased by the state in 1803 and hunters and trappers operated on the periphery. The 1859 gold rush brought miners to the area. They were followed by homesteaders and ranchers who were drawn by the mountain water. The Rocky Mountain National Park Act of 1915 set the boundaries, incorporating some private lands. During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps built campgrounds, roads, trails and bridges. There are 415 square miles of which 250000 acres have been declared wilderness areas. More than 4.5 million people visit the park annually.
