Colorado State Trustlands, Wildlife Areas and Fish Units
The list of State Trust Lands, Wildlife Areas and Fish Units available in Colorado is presented here, broken down by counties. Just make a selection below and you can see what's offered. This list was current as of May, 2012.
Before you visit, there's a couple of things to know:
- Unless otherwise posted, all State Trust Lands leased by CDOW are closed from March 1 to August 31, but some State Wildlife Areas are open year-round for wildlife viewing purposes.
- State Trust Lands are open only for hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing.
- Camping is not allowed on State Trust Lands but is on some State Wildlife Areas.
- Target practice or target shooting is prohibited on State Trust Lands.
- Youths under 16 must be accompanied by a mentor who is at least 18 or older and who has complied with the hunter education requirements.
- State Trust Lands are closed from 1/2 hour after sunset to 1/2 hour before sunrise.
- A Colorado Wildlife Habitat Stamp is required of everyone 19-64 years old who purchases hunting or fishing licenses. The stamp is $5 and is added to each of the first 2 licenses you buy in any calendar year. That Habitat Stamp allows you access to all State Trust Lands leased by CDOW and to all State Wildlife Areas.
- People aged 19-64 who visit State Trust Lands or State Wildlife Areas without buying a hunting or fishing license must pay $10.25 (per calendar year) for the privilege.
- For $200 anyone can buy a Lifetime Habitat Stamp.
