Reserve a backpacking permit at RMNP

It’s no wonder why 4 million people visit Rocky Mountain National Park each year. The park boasts numerous beautiful lakes and breathtaking mountain views that are accessible to both day hikers and backcountry campers. Plan ahead, though: if you would like to enjoy RMNP’s wilderness backpacking, you will need a permit. These permits help protect the park’s natural resources from too many visitors and are available in limited quantities.
