About the Grand Lake Cemetery 

The Grand Lake Cemetery is one of the very few active cemeteries located within a National Park. It is located just inside the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) boundary at US HWY 34 and County Road 49. The cemetery is operated and maintained by the Town. 
The Cemetery Committee (Mandy Hanifen, Chairman) members are appointed by the Town Board of Trustees.  Meetings are held, as needed. 

Administered under a National Park Service Permit, prior approval is required for any burials, any monument placement, any excavation or ground disturbance, planting (no artificial flowers are permitted), open flames, or any alteration or addition to the natural or historical condition of the area. Violators are subject to Federal Prosecution. 

Please contact the Grand Lake Town Clerk at or (970) 627-3435 for more information.
