The suspension bridge, which is 956 feet above the river and among the highest in the world, is made of more than 1,000 wooden planks.
"We did not know until today whether the bridge was still standing," Gorge Bridge and Park spokeswoman Peggy Gair said.
Gair says fire at the park burned a visitor's center, a tramway building, a carousel and several restaurants.
There were other fires in the state as well, including in Grand and Huerfano counties. Black Forest was the biggest of the blazes.
