Military members and veterans (resident and nonresident) can pick up a free August Military Pass at any Colorado State Park or CPW office by showing proof of service.  All other park fees remain in effect, including camping reservations, boat and off-highway vehicle registrations, and hunting and fishing licenses. Also, entry is free for everyone at all Colorado State Parks on Aug. 2, in celebration of Colorado Day.  cpw.state.co.us
