Members of the military will get free admission to any of Colorado’s 42 state parks on Veterans day, November 11.

Governor Hickenlooper announced the offer Friday. “We can never truly repay the debt to our active and retired military personnel, but we can formally thank them on Veterans Day for the sacrifices they have made. We hope they are able to spend the day at a state park with family and friends,” he said in a written statement.

For free admission, active, reserved or retired military can present a military ID, discharge papers or other proof of service at the park gate. All other passengers in their vehicle will also be admitted for free.
