Best Sunday afternoon! Friends invited us to swim beach to kayak. Brought a picnic. Beach was nice. Not crowded. Beautiful peaceful setting. Park signage a little confusing.

Great place for hiking, jogging, cycling or water sports in this man made reservoir that is now a spectacular state park.

We live only 10 miles away, but this park makes a get away feel special. Colorado put a lot of money in its state parks and this is one of their more beautiful state park. The camping spots are large and provide privacy. Definitely ruins us for traveling across country and having to stop at campgrounds with neighbors 15 feet... More

This is a great recreation area for the south Metro area. It is easy to spend a day here, boating, swimming, biking, etc. The swim beach is an easy way to spend a summer day.

We live the close proximity to Littleton, Golden and Denver. The park is well maintained and the RV sites are not close together. The weekend is hard to get a site in the campground because most people reserve months in advance.

I ride my road bike regularly through Chatfield. During the week it is a fantastic place to ride with light vehicle traffic, rollers to flats and short climbs up either side of the dam. Always something new to see. Weekends can be crowded

We've been a number of times and the dog park is HUGE and contains several lakes for the dogs to splash, play and chase balls, sticks etc. The trails are well maintained and there are bathroom facilities as well as doggie poop bags if you need them. We purchased the annual pass (for the park itself) $70 and the annual... More

This state park is 30min from Denver, so if you don't want to spend too much money for a motel, this could be an alternative. It has a nice lake, playgrounds, trails...but I have been in much nicer parks, specially for tent camping. It has showers, but they aren't free...very little pressure and the water is cold...the sites are ok,... More

We went to Chatfield Stables in the heat of a 90 degree day. It was hot, and I was regretting wearing the blue jeans and the recommended boots (open-toed shoes and slip-ons are a no-no). We arrived way too early, interrupting the wranglers and the owner at their lunch. I thought we might be getting off on the wrong foot,... More

We rented a full service RV site here on July 1 for a couple of days and wished we could have stayed longer. The park is well designed with a bike/walking trail that follows the lake all the way to the marina and there are park benches facing the lake along the trail. The views of the lake were awesome...
