Park Rules


The park is open from sunrise to sunset during fall and winter months.  During the longer spring and summer hours, the park will open at 6:30 am.  The Colfax police department will make a trip around the park near sunset.  If there are no campers, they will lock the gate.  If there are campers, they typically will leave the gate open or close it without locking.  


Please use the interactive map to get familiar with the park boundaries.
