State Forest State Park, Colorado

Typically, people travel to Colorado to explore the Rockies, but visitors to State Forest State Park have the unique opportunity to hang out in the self-proclaimed moose viewing capital. But don’t worry, if you came to Colorado for craggy mountain peaks, State Forest State Park is 71,000 acres of classic Colorado terrain. Surrounded by the Medicine Bow Mountains and Never Summer Range, visitors to State Forest State Park can hike, bike, camp, or explore rugged peaks, alpine lakes, and acres of dense forest.

Park Highlights: With a population of over 600 moose in the park, moose sightings are the State Forest’s claim to fame. Take a drive, bike, walk, or hike throughout the park in search of moose. Just remember to keep a safe distance from wildlife.
