It's closer to Denver, but if you get this far try Waterton Canyon and Roxborough State Park. Chatfield State Park looks better for bicycling.

Chatfield is an arid high plans state park, it will be hot in the summer with limited shade. There are numerous bike trails some that hook up with trails outside the park taking riders to various places in Denver. Boating is allowed, with fishing from the boat or from shore. Waterskiing is allowed, there is a roped off swim beach,... More

The road around the park is great for cyclists. There is a huge dog park to bring your 4 legged pals that is right on the river. Camping and fishing too.

What a beautiful place to take the family for a picnic or for a fishing outing. Gorgeous views and just an all around perfect spot for a days outing. One caution - if you're going there on a holiday weekend, go early as it can get very crowded!

We camp at Chatfield State Park often during the spring, summer and fall because it has so many different RV sites to choose from. Some sites overlook the lake while others provide a scenic view of the surrounding foothills. With so many sites to choose from, you need to reserve your favorite site early (because it may be someone else's... More

The dog park at Chatfield State Park is well laid out. My dogs have loved the freedom to socialize with both humans and other dogs. The pets enjoy the two lakes that they can access.

We are yearly pass holders and mostly utilize the dog park. There are about 1.5 miles of paved and unpaved trails and over 100 acres of area for your dog to roam. There are a couple of ponds for your dogs to cool off in, so bring a towel (your animals will be sandy and muddy!).

This park is great for fishing and hiking, biking and the marina has an amazing restaurant hidden behind the general store. Check out the giant carp when walking towards the store!

The camping areas are covered in goose poop. No where when you register does it tell you that even though you reserved a full hookup site there is NO water at the sites. The site we reserved in advanced was occupied when we got there. We were told to take a different spot only to be told the next day... More
