Join Friends of Lory State Park
Each year, Lory State Park hosts almost 150,000 visitors with a small staff of full and part-time personnel. Like all Colorado State Parks, Lory has been “enterprised” since 2011 and no longer receives General Funds (money from state income and sales taxes.)
Each park must operate like a business to fund programs and operations. Friends of Lory members help bridge the gap at Lory State Park through memberships, donations and volunteer support. We are dedicated to supporting and promoting recreational, natural, educational and interpretive activities within the park.
The Friends of Lory State Park is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and your dues and donations are tax deductible.
