On Jan. 1, 2018, Colorado Parks and Wildlife launched a new integrated purchasing system that will serve as a one-stop shop for all CPW products, including hunting and fishing licenses, campsite reservations, OHV and snowmobile permit renewals, Colorado Outdoors magazine and more.
“We are excited to offer a streamlined customer service experience by combining all prior purchasing and reservations systems into one,” said Bob Broscheid, Director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “Being able to plan a full trip, from parks pass to campsite to fishing license, all from one account and in a single checkout, is a huge benefit to our customers.”
This new system allows account holders to use a single login to purchase CPW products, including:
- All camping, cabin and yurt reservations
- All fishing license purchases, Including waterfowl stamps
- All hunting licenses, as well as checking preference points and draw status and updating application information
- Habitat stamps
- Annual and Aspen Leaf parks passes
- Online retail orders, including Colorado Outdoors magazine
New customers and hunters and anglers who do not have existing ReserveAmerica accounts should find the process of creating an account similar to setting up any other online account, choosing a username and password and including identification information such as a birthdate and a driver’s license or state identification number. Additional details are required for purchasing hunting and fishing licenses, including your social security number and existing Customer Identification Number (CID) if applicable.
CPW acknowledges a system challenge for those existing customers who have accounts created in both CPW Reservations/ReserveAmerica and in their previous licensing system.
The two accounts need to be merged into a single account in the new system and CPW says they are working to resolve the issue.
In the meantime, the agency encourages existing customers to call CPW’s hunt planning and reservations teams to assist with merging accounts at 1-800-678-2267 and select option 2.
Detailed instructions on setting up a new account, or updating an existing ReserveAmerica account, can be found on the CPW Shop FAQs page.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife looks forward to helping customers plan their outdoor experiences. To learn more, and to start using the new system, visit cpw.state.co.us.
