You can make reservations 180 days in the future both online www.larimercamping.com and through the reservation call center (1-800-397-7795).

Larimer County Natural Resources operates campgrounds at seven parks. Most weekends (Fridays through Sundays) from Memorial Day through Labor Day, campsites are full and reserved systemwide, except at Hermit Park Open Space. Sites that are not reserved become available that day as first-come, first-served for people who are physically present at the parks. These sites can not be held, nor can they be guaranteed over the phone.

Most weekdays (Mondays through Thursdays), there are usually sites available at all campgrounds as first-come, first-served. November through April, almost all sites are available first-come, first-served if you choose not to make a reservation. Campers without camping reservations MUST check in at specific locations.
