Neat campground but be aware that there is only electrical (20, 30, 50 amp) service. Must fill with water before you set up and may need to use the dump station. But, still a great place. Good base for touring the Rockies and going into Denver. Close to Red Rock Park. Easy access and a neat park.

Lots of trails and a beach for swimming. Make sure you get there early for a good spot on a hot day. The beach will pack in so stake out an area. Trails are awesome to burn some calories on a long walk or exploring with the dogs.

This is a great park that is often overlooked by people who drive by on 470. I have taken the family to the lake to go swimming, taken my work Staff to the gazebos for picnics and outdoor meetings, organized church services at the larger gazebos, planned camping trips there for members of our church, fished in the lakes, hiked...

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.
