As of Jan. 1, all of Colorado’s state parks will have reservation-only camping , but some people are nervous about campers who claim multiple campsites without ever actually using them, according to ABC 7.

An additional nine parks will use the new online portal and phone reservation system starting Jan. 1, bringing the total to all 31 parks that allow camping. According to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website, “under the new system, campers can reserve a site, 24/7, anywhere from six months in advance up until the day of their arrival.”

Going into 2020, the majority of the state’s state parks were reservation only, including Chatfield, Cherry Creek, St. Vrain and more. This new policy will impact the parks that did have walk-up only periods, including Pearl Lake, Steamboat Lake and Yampa River.

This new policy worries some campers, who are concerned that multiple sites will be reserved by people who never end up using them, therefore shutting out the rest of the public from camping.

“I have some neighbors that reserve a bunch of dates at a bunch of campsites,” camper Brian Restrom said in an email. “They only actually use a few of those reservations each season, and end up canceling or simply not using the others, at minimal cost to themselves.“
