The Yurt System
is located in the Colorado State Forest State Park, North/West of Fort Collins, CO. A valid Parks Pass is required on each vehicle and may be purchased at the entrance station. Daily passes are $7. Annual passes may be purchased at park headquarters during business hours for $70.
The Colorado State Forest State Park
is located two miles west of Gould on Colorado Highway 14, which follows the Poudre Canyon. Driving time from Fort Collins is approximately two hours, from Denver/Boulder approximately three hours. The State Forest entrance is well marked, but another landmark to watch for is the North Park KOA - both share the same entrance between mile marker 53 and 54.
If the Colorado State Patrol
closes Highway 14 because of bad weather over Cameron Pass, there are several alternative routes. The best, from Ft. Collins, is to take Hwy 287 to Laramie then Hwy 230 south to Walden, then east on Hwy 14 to the park. From Denver, go up Hwy 40 through Granby to Walden, then Hwy 14 east to the park between mile marker 53 and 54.
