Tip: Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest Campgrounds Fill Quickly

Now is the time to start thinking about reservations for the 2013 camping season - - that is the tip currently being offered by the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests.

Campgrounds on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland (ARP) fill quickly during the camping season. As the Colorado population grows, finding a weekend or holiday campsite is becoming more difficult. Here are some tips to help you secure your favorite site:

* Choose a campground that accepts reservations – some have both first come first serve and reservable sites. Other campgrounds accept reservations for all their sites. Determine if reservations are offered by checking the ARP Campground Table.

* Reserve early – up to six months in advance – at or call 1-877-444-6777. If you are trying to reserve longer than 180 days in advance the website will indicate that space is not available.

* Reservation policies summarize when you can make a reservation, call center hours, methods of payments, cancellation and refund policies and how to use your Interagency Senior or Access Pass. Read more about Interagency Passes on the ARP website.

ARP Visitor Information Specialists will be happy to answer your questions about finding your place under the stars! They are familiar with the campground you may be considering. You can find their numbers on the ARP Offices Page.
