Introducing free parking at State and Provincial Parks

Love the city, leave the city. We think you can do both. Thanks to partnerships with State and Provincal Park departments across North America, Zipcars have free parking* to must-see parks in the U.S. and Canada. Zip to hiking, swimming, kayaking, or whatever your nature-loving heart desires—then pull up to free parking and continue on foot. Select your city to learn how to reserve park-ready wheels.

*Camping and additional access fees may apply. Parking subject to availability.

Where do you zip?

Experience all the exhilarating adventures that Colorado has to offer. We’ve equipped some of our Zipcars with park passes, giving you access to all 41 state parks, and some of the most amazing views of deep canyons and the famous Rocky Mountains. Take a walk on the wild side and choose from miles of different hiking trails or mountain climbing expeditions. See a few of our popular parks in Colorado below.

Eleven Mile State Park

Spanning 7,662 acres, Eleven Mile State Park features a huge reservoir and nearby wetlands that make it incredibly popular with boaters and fishers. Other park activities include everything from biking and birding, to camping and cross-country skiing.

Cherry Creek State Park

Explore 880 acres of natural prairie and wetlands at Cherry Creek State Park. Learn about the region through one of the interpretive nature trails, or enjoy a day of archery, fishing, paddle boarding or wildlife watching.

Eldorado Canyon State Park

Eldorado Canyon covers 885 acres and consists of the developed Inner Canyon and untouched Crescent Meadows. The park offers over 500 technical rock-climbing routes with scenic views, as well as mountain biking, boating, hot springs and much more.
