Pawnee National Grassland

Pawnee National Grassland is a United States National Grassland located in northeastern Colorado on the Colorado Eastern Plains, about 111 miles (179 km) northeast of Denver, Colorado. It’s an area rich in history and wildlife, of which a wide variety of plants and animals call home; the wildflowers, flora and fauna are adapted to the environments of the area. Please note that while there are no designated areas for stargazing, the entire prairie is far out of reach from any city lights, smoke, or pollution, so the night sky will be fully lit for those who can appreciate a beautiful view. Camping is also available, and is offered in a selection of trailer and tent grounds that vary in their amenities. For more information, please visit online or call 970-834-9270 between 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time, Wednesday through Friday.
