This park is wildly beautiful each and every season. Great hiking spot in the spring and fall. Many deer on the trails. Winter is more tranquil but still great hiking. Summer oh summer! Great boating or jet skiing spot! The Cherry Creek Yacht Club even offers sailboat lessons on the weekends!

This is beautiful reservoir and is surrounded by hiking/biking paths through a large wildland/wetland preserve. A shout-out to Victoria Sailing School, where else would you go to learn sailing other than Colorado?

Convenient for Aurora, CO. Accommodates most boats including sail. Shallow though ave depth about 30 ft. Very very busy during summer with skiing and PWC keeping the water very choppy. Has RC plane park, stables and shooting range. Wildlife watching, fishing, picnicking. $10 a year for watercraft and $10 a day for entrance fee. Our third choice for fishing.

Although surrounded on all sides by the hustle and bustle of city life, Cherry Creek State Park is an urban oasis where you can get away from it all and feel like you're miles from civilization. Just be aware that other than a beautiful lake and nice distant views of the Rockies, it is pretty desolate here so don't expect... More

it is the only beach in Aurora and a good place for water sports. They have camping but get there really early as they fill fast. Gets crowded on weekends and there is a line of cars waiting to get in. Nice hiking trails.

Enjoy taking our family to this little gem of a park. Fishing, boating, bike riding, hiking, shooting sports, etc. Pretty much everything you might want to do close to town, while feeling much more rustic.

Went for a weekend in Sept 2024. Very nice weather. The beach was not overcrowded. The deer were posing for us all at the campgrounds. Overall I would do this again.

Boats and skidoos are allowed on the lake with load... More

It is nice to be able to see wildlife and enjoy nature without having to drive too far from home. Right in the middle of suburbia you have a dog park, horseback riding, nature trails, wetlands, a swim beach, and more. A season pass is worth the price.

Since Colorado doesn't have much water around, I'm happy to have Cherry Creek State Park right in the middle of the city. Have had many fun times boating, jet skiing and swimming at this park. It has a great view of the mountain range as a back drop so I had my wedding at this Park. Great place for biking... More
