LOVELAND - In consultation with Larimer County Department of Health and Environment and the Board of County Commissioners, Larimer County Natural Resources announces selective criteria for reopening camping at its reservoir parks beginning Friday, April 24 until further notice. 

Camping will be allowed at selective Larimer County reservoir parks based on the following criteria:

  • Larimer County residents only
  • Camping will be limited to existing reservations already booked in system
  • Self-contained “hard-side” units only (defined as camping units with bathrooms)
  • No secondary units (tent pad adjacent to RV site) allowed
  • One campground to open at Horsetooth Reservoir (South Bay) and Carter Lake Area (Flatiron) only
  • No tent camping allowed
  • No walk-up camping reservations allowed
  • Cabins and tipis remain closed 
  • All restrooms and shower houses closed
  • Group picnic sites and pavilions remain closed
  • Marinas and concessionaires remain closed
  • Hermit Park camping remains closed due to Estes Park’s Stay at Home Order
  • Campsites at Horsetooth Reservoir and Carter Lake allow a maximum of 8 people per unit 

The benefits of being in the outdoors is critical to the health and mental wellbeing of our community. As one of the top recreational pursuits of outdoor enthusiasts, camping within the criteria listed above allows for public safety and distancing while offering a valued recreational opportunity in Larimer County.

Reopening new reservation availability and adjusting selective criteria for camping will occur in tandem with guidance from the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment and Board of County Commissioners.
