We needed to stay 2 weeks while on family business in the Denver area. We had to move frequently due to site availability. There are over 100 RV sites with full hook-ups. Enjoyed the park. Make your reservations early to avoid my situation of having to move around daily.

I love this park. I used to bike around the park, 12 miles and it was always good. I dont like that they have a shooting range in the park. It kind of makes sure that all the animals (deer, etc) never come out. It is self-defeating. I would suggest they remove the shooting range.

We enjoyed an afternoon picnic at Chery Creek State Park. There is plenty of shade available and parking. Many people of our group enjoyed swimming in the lake. Would have gotten a better review had the sinks been working in the bathrooms. Nice touch though, they have an ice and soft drink vending machines.

What is not to like about a beach and boating? They have a nice marina to eat at and plenty of trails for bikes and hiking. Bikers and hikers are free.

There's a swim beach, plenty of trails, a wet land area, boat marina and so much more. We love to fish here too.
