Pattison State Park has 59 regular (family) campsites, 18 of them with electric hookups and three backpack sites. There is a sanitary dumping station but no sewer or water hookups. Showers and flush toilets are available during the summer.

Pattison provides a campsite, picnic area, telephone, water fountain and toilet-shower building that are accessible to people with disabilities. The paths to the shelter building, nature center, bathhouse, Little Manitou Falls and Big Manitou Falls overlooks are accessible. A map is available at the park office showing accessible buildings and facilities.

Seasonal water systems notice: The park and campground water systems (flush toilet buildings, shower building, drinking fountains and the dump station) are shut down for the season and will reopen in spring 2022. The pit toilets are open year-round. During the off-season, visitors can get water from the contact station during open office hours.

Backpack campsites

The backpack sites are about 1.6 miles from the parking area. They have vault toilets, tables and fire rings. Water must be carried in; garbage must be carried out.


Firewood may be purchased at the park office. There are soft drink vending machines outside the shelter and in the campground shower building. Nearby businesses offer ice and other items.
