Bear Creek is a very accessible park, which means it is just off of the highway. If you are just playing on the beach and swimming in the lake, this is not a big issue. However, if you are camping, the traffic noise is pretty loud. The park also gets very busy due to the location. However, you can rent... More

Great place to play sand volleyball or rent a paddle boat, or engage in any number of water activities, but if it's that "Colorado beauty" that you're looking for, this is not the place to be.

We all go as a family here 5-6 times per summer, and it always it great! They offer rental paddle boards and that's typically what we go for, as it's a great work out, and lots of fun (even if you fall half a dozen times!). It gets really busy on select weekends, so you need to be strategic when... More

Super easy access for the Lakewood/Littleton crowd. Not really a tourist destination but a great place for a quick run, mountain bike or even a paddle on your SUP. Climb to the top of Mount Carbon for some great view of Denver and even the occasional spotting of a bald eagle. Look west at 470 and pity the folks who... More

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
