COLORADO | Golden Gate Canyon State Park implements a two-night stay beginning January 1, 2019

GOLDEN, CO – In an effort to increase efficiency in staffing and continue to provide a high level of customer service Golden Gate Canyon State Park will begin requiring a two-night minimum stay in all cabins and yurts beginning in 2019.

Golden Gate Canyon State Park features five standard cabins, two yurts and a large group cabin available for reservations.  Customers will still be able to reserve cabins and yurts online or by calling 1-800-244-5613, but should be aware that a minimum stay is now required.

“Starting next year, Golden Gate Canyon will be moving to a two-night minimum stay for all of our cabins and yurts.  This is something many of our state parks already require, so while it is not a new idea, it is a new policy here at Golden Gate,” said Todd Farrow, park manager at Golden Gate Canyon State Park.  “We wanted to get the word out now, as the six-month window to begin booking sites for January 2019 is now open.”

When does the reservation policy start?
Minimum stays will be required beginning January 1, 2019.

Will cabins and yurts still be available for first come, first served “walk-in” reservations?
Yes.  If cabins and yurts have not been already been reserved, they will be available as walk-ins; however, the two-night minimum stay will still be required.

More than 12,000 acres of dense forest, rocky peaks, and aspen-rimmed meadows laced with miles of trails await the hiker, horseback rider, mountain biker and winter sports enthusiast at Golden Gate Canyon State Park.  To learn more about Golden Gate Canyon, or any of our 41 state parks, visit cpw.state.co.us.
