Great area for all sorts of activities. There is camping, and archery area, a beach where you can rent water spot items and also an area to take boats out in. There is always a lot of people there but enough space where your not on top of each other.

We went horseback riding while we were there. Our guide, Molly, was awesome! She really knew the area and was hilarious! The views were amazing from the saddle! We saw magpies and prairie dogs! Everything was just beautiful! Remember to bring water and wear sunscreen, though, because of how easy it is to get dehydrated! $7 gets you access to... More

Stand up Paddle boarding at this lake was fun. I went to a BBQ and they have some boats ect you can rent. There are hiking trails, but I would rent a boat and relax on water unless you are someone who has to talk all the time. I

We enjoyed a lovely hot late summer day at this lake with the kids. Playground, bathroom facilities, picnic tables, sand volleyball courts, grass and beach were all clean. Gradual slope into the lake which was great for little ones. No lifeguards. It was wonderful to be in the water on a hot day.

My son loves the beach, but we don't have real beaches around Colorado, so we decided to visit Bear Creek Lake beach for the day. We went on a HOT Saturday in August. The park was so busy that we had to wait in about a 5 minute traffic line just to get into the park. It was definitely crowded,... More

Came here on a Thursday afternoon and the place was hopping. We went to the rental part of the lake and gave an ID paid $20 for one hour, and we were off. Had a great time paddle boarding for the first time. Two of us were newbies and the third was a novice. The boards are easy to maneuver.... More

Convienent and close for both short and long hikes. Lots of shade and places to rest for the beginner hiker. Very pretty area. Some places for a family picnic, party or just a day out. Also has biking trails, some shared with hikers.

went here to see what this man made 'dam' and lake looked like and was surprised how much recreational activity there could be (fishing, swimming, horseback riding)

Don't go on the weekend. Lines have been so long just to get in and the "beach" is packed. Nice for a bike ridewith the kids during the week. Lots of good sidewalks for little riders.
