Tent camping (or any soft-sided unit that does not have an operational restroom interior to the unit) is not allowable due to the closure of campground restrooms. Evaluation continues to occur in consultation with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment to determine when full operations and reservations of tent camping can resume in the future. This phased reopening approach to camping has been implemented to ensure the highest staff and visitor safety and occupancy control at our campgrounds to slow the spread of COVID-19.
