State Forest State Park opens seven North Park Campground cabins as improvements continue
CPW News Release
STATE FOREST STATE PARK, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife has opened seven additional North Park Campground cabins at State Forest State Park to the public, beginning immediately. The cabins are located at the former KOA campground near the entrance of the park.

CPW recently took over management of the campground as part of a new lease agreement with the State Land Board.

"We've been working hard to get this campground updated and improved, and this is one small step in that process," said Senior Ranger Tony Johnson. "We have a ways to go to meet state standards across the entire campground, but we expect to get there soon."

Although considered 'rustic,' the newly opened cabins include electrical service and are ideal for a camping getaway.

In addition to the seven recently opened cabins, the North Park Campground features two deluxe cabins, 20 basic sites and 10 walk-up sites.

Johnson says due to the ongoing improvements, visitors may see construction activity and equipment for several more months.

The rate for the cabins is $80 per night, plus the $10 reservation fee. The cabins can accommodate four campers and are an ideal for nearby hunting, camping and fishing recreation. Showers, bathrooms, and laundry in short walking distance.

State Forest State Park offers visitors 71,000 acres of forest, jagged peaks, alpine lakes, wildlife and miles of trails. The park stretches along the west side of the Medicine Bow Mountains and into the north end of the Never Summer Range.

North Park is considered the moose viewing capital of Colorado. State Forest State Park and the surrounding area features over 600 moose visible year-round.

Visitors can experience an array of outdoor recreational favorites such as camping, hiking, four-wheeling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, birding, wildlife viewing and geocaching.
