Colorado's newest state park opened to the public on May 18, 2013. The park is located approximately 40 miles southwest of downtown Denver, north of US Highway 285 and about six miles west of Conifer. The Park sits divided between Park and Jefferson counties, in Pine, Colorado.
The first 1,720-acre parcel of land was donated to then Colorado State Parks in 1986 by Frances Hornbrook Staunton. Subsequent parcels of land were added over the years to make up the now 3,828 acre park.
Pets are permitted at Staunton but must be under your physical control on a six foot leash at all times to ensure the safety of you and your pet.
Seasonal raptor closures may occur (typically March-July) in certain areas of the park. Closures are federally mandated by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and anyone discovered unlawfully accessing the area is subject to a fine up to $5000 and one (1) year imprisonment.
Currently there is no camping at Staunton State Park. The park is day-use only at this time. No overnight parking available.
