The Colorado State Parks system integrates outdoor recreation with tourism. There are currently forty-two parks open to the public, there are two in development. Colorado State Parks host over eleven million visitors each year. Colorado State Parks celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2009.

This agency also takes lead in managing Colorado's boating, off-highway vehicle, snowmobile, river-outfitter licensing, and trails programs.
