  • If you plan on fishing in the park, a Colorado fishing license is required.
  • Pets are allowed in the park but not allowed on trails or meadows. Pets must be kept on a leash and are permitted in areas that can be accessed by vehicles, such as roads, parking lots, picnic areas, and campgrounds.
