In Rocky Mountain National Park, the backcountry permit is $20.00 for up to 7 nights in a single visit. (Limit of 7 per party for individual campsites and crosscountry areas. Limit of 12 per party for group campsites.)

Please remember that you must have a backcountry/wilderness permit to camp overnight in Rocky's backcountry/wilderness. You can pick one up at the Beaver Meadows Visitors Center Backcountry Office or at the Kawuneeche Visitor Center.

To minimize impacts on the park's resources, the number of permits issued is limited. You may obtain day-of-trip permits in person year round. You may make reservations by mail or in person anytime after March 1 for a permit for that calendar year. You may make reservations by phone from March 1 to May 15 and anytime after October 1 for a permit for that calendar year.
