The idea of the beach is nice but with a view on the freeway...could the have chosen a worse spot? Other than that, nice park. Boat rentals is not cheap but just take your bike and cycle through, roads are great. There are picknick and BBQ facilities with roofs so also good for families e.g. celebrating a kids birthday.

If you are looking to go to a concert at red rocks and need an affordable awesome place to camp, this is it. We stayed in one of the cabins. We shared it with another couple. It was 55.00 dollars a night. They have modern bathrooms and hot showers up the road a bit. Easy walk. During the day very... More

You can get day passes ($10) or you can get a campsite ($20 per night), we had a campsite, the restroom was nice and it had a shower and a place to do laundry. The park is close to various neighborhoods, which we like, but you do have traffic noise and street lights. They have various things to do here... More

We get an annual pass because we live an hour away up at 9600' elevation. All winter while we've got a foot to 4 feet of snow we can blast down to this park and ride our road bikes in 50-60 degrees. There are miles of paved paths and roads as well. In summer we bring our camper and spend... More

Bear Creek Lake Park has a wonderful bike route around the park, up a big hill and back around through a golf course plus there is a nice sandy lake beach with fun rentals - windsurfing, stand up paddle boards, kayaks and more. Great place for fun in the sun - can get crowded on the weekends.

Checked out this park today and it was really neat! I loved how much there was to do between the beach and trails and rentals. I was there for one purpose though, horseback riding! I ride horses at home, so I'm pretty picky about where I ride and the stables here fit the bill. The horses were all in great... More

I have stayed here before years ago.I remember now why I haven't came back.The facilities needed painted and smell awful.There aren't many trees or anything for that matter in the camp area.The picnic tables are worn and splintered.The fishing is poor. There is a nice bike path but that is all that is positive at this location. I would suggest... More

We dropped by here just to see what kind of camping sites there were (we're looking into purchasing a camper). It's $7 per day or $50 per year. We stopped at the visitor's center and were greeted by a very friendly and helpful young lady. She told us about the camping sites and the trails. We stayed in the park... More

We have camped in the park a few times, and I'm always pleasantly surprised how nice it is. There are 30 amp and 50 amp electric hookups with approx. 50 sites that are well maintained and level. The sites are big, with enough room for a large RV, car, picnic table and chairs to sit around the campfire. There are... More
