Colorado State Forest was established in 1938. The 71,000-acre state park is part of 4.5 million acres of state trust land granted to Colorado when it became a state in 1876. Uses for the park include grazing, logging and recreation. Bockman Campground took its name from Bockman Lumber Camp, where more than 100 lumber workers and their families lived in the 1950s and 1960s.
