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

Bear Creek Lake Park locaed off C-470 and Morrison Road in Lakewood, Colorado is a great park to spend the day. The park is full of trails for both pedestrians, horses or bikers. Being a smaller lake you are allowed to take canoes and small engine boats out for fishing but larger vessels are prohibited. There is also an archery... More

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the swim beach at Bear Creek Lake Park. The water appeared much cleaner & was much higher than last summer. It is shallow so even the little kids can wade out pretty far, although it is quite cold. This is a great place to bring your grill, chairs, and beach toys & spend the... More

This is a great park with wonderful scenery, abundant wildlife and a spectacular view of the mountains. There are literally miles and miles of walking and cycling paths. We visited it every day during our stay.

My wife and I love trail running all through the park. There are rolling hills and most of the trails are soft and non-technical. There are many access points to the trails and there is no need to actually drive into the park. Keep your eyes open for road bikes and mountain bikes--this is a favorite place for many recreational... More

In my opinion, Soda Lake is better but this isn't bad. This shore is sometimes less crowded. The water is tepid at best. No pets are allowed.
