I'm looking to get married somewhere outdoors in Colorado. I would prefer to have a casual wedding with a campground setting where the guests can stay overnight in tents. Any ideas?

Sylvan Lake is the first place that came to mind, but there are lots of other state parks too:
Sylvan Lake | Colorado State Parks

Snow Mountain Ranch/YMCA of the Rockies is another option:
Cabins and Lodge Rooms

Sounds like a great wedding by the way.

A lot depends on how much time your guests have to travel to the site. Will they mostly be coming from the front range, from all over the state, out of state or a mix of all three? If you have a significant number coming from out of state you might want to stay within 2-3 hours of Denver for their convenience / cost flying in and to avoid the drive eating up too much time each way.

In addition to the places mentioned you could look into spots around Red Feather Lakes (west of Fort Collins), maybe Allenspark (west of Longmont) and maybe Deckers (west of Castle Rock) or Lake George (west of Colorado Springs).

Or maybe somewhere in the Gore Mountains / Williams Fork Mountains north of Dillion along Hwy 9. Or in the Wet Mountains or near Westcliffe (west of Pueblo).

If your guests are willing to spend more travel time you could look around Steamboat Springs, Crested Butte or Durango. Or Buena Vista.

The best place will depend on the size of the event and how many really want to camp vs have a cabin, bb. motel or hotel, etc. And if dining, nightlife, shopping, etc. matter or not.
