loved the convenience of restrooms and showers. It was nice and quiet! Customer service was not the best. Lovely beach area for my babies to safely play at!!

The park was great until they built the fences of hell! I hate walking with my dog in the park because you never know where you're going to be able to go! The water is mainly blocked off from most of the paths and is as dry as a nuns box most of the summer…it's not a good attraction… the... More

what a giant park accessible to so many folks. The bike paths are especially impressive, stretching into downtown and just all over the place. Well maintained too.

Stayed here as a stopover for a flight instead of getting a hotel. Great location and very peaceful. There was a fire ban enacted at the time, so that was a bummer not being able to cookout but the views were gorgeous!

One of our favorite state parks in the country. An oasis in the city, you'd hardly know the city was there.

Overall nice, large park with lots of trails. It's a great location for those in the Denver metro area who want to get to nature without going far. The lake is a nice setting but a bit small for boaters, especially when you add water skiers to the equation. Many of the outlying areas of the water are too shallow... More

Great place to meet fellow campers, boaters, fishing and swimming. A safe park to visit. A good place for locals to meet in the Denver area, as well as out of towners to stay and be within the Denver Metro area.

The cherry creek state park offers a magnificent view of the mountains n the skyline of DTC. It has a nice mix of awesome trails...wildlife..a marina n mountain views. The reservoir is humongous attracting lot of activities. Perfectly located near I-225 and Parker rd....it is an oasis in disguise. Last but not the least....if u love green...this is the place...

Love this piece of wilderness . Great at dawn and dusk to see all the wildlife, and best on quiet weekdays when there is lots of parking and space. We don't go on those crowded weekends but thry to get out there several times a month to just breathe away from the hustle of Denver traffic. Great place to paddle... More
