New self-service kiosks installed at Colorado State Parks
Colorado Parks and Wildlife now accepts digital payment to purchase passes and other products
DENVER, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife has good news for park visitors who don’t travel with much pocket money. CPW is rolling out new self-service kiosks at Colorado state parks that will augment or replace the existing system requiring customers to place their cash in envelopes when staff aren’t available to sell park passes. The new machines take credit cards and are more weather-resistant than the envelope system, more convenient for customers who aren’t carrying cash, and require less employee time to collect payment.
Not a lot of people have exactly seven dollars [for a daily park pass] in their pockets. As far as customer service goes, being able to pay by credit card is definitely a desirable service option. This helps our state parks become more modernized. Most of the kiosks run on solar power, provide multiple sales channels to our customers, and help our staff with money collection and counting. It also helps our law enforcement officers quickly determine who has bought a pass and who hasn’t. — CPW Statewide Business Operations Coordinator Kirk Teklits
The kiosks accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards.
The kiosks can also sell annual state park passes.
The machine prints a receipt to redeem an annual pass at any CPW office.
15 stations are currently installed at 9 parks and more to come this summer:
- The new kiosks are currently located at these state parks:
James M. Robb – Island Acres
- The kiosks will be installed at these locations later this summer:
