If you don't have a boat, and don't want to catch polluted fish there is not much to do. Watching the model airplanes is fun, but it seems there should be more activities available. I saw a large deer there once which was kool. Maybe it is just a place to relax in a lawn chair. I suppose you could... More

We live close to Chatfield and go a couple of times a year. It's pretty nice and away from the crowds - camping is fun there because it's close to the water and pretty quiet and has hook up for trailers. If you are lucky you might see hot air balloons over the water. It's flat and not wooded by... More

This Colorado State Park is Excellent. There is a lot to do. Hiking and Biking Trails, Wildlife, Horseback riding. Fishing by the Lake or Stream. Great place for a picnic. A swim beach in the summer, and campgrounds. Access to many biking trails into and out of the park. Sometimes in the early morning you can see hot air balloons.... More

We stayed at this campground as a good central location to visit Denver and do some back to school shopping. This campground had all the features we really like. A beautiful view of the mountains, large paved sites with full hookups including decent wifi, quite a few tv channels, and for the evening campfire, a really nice, clean fire pit.... More

Biking, hiking and camping in addition to boating, this , Colorado's most heavily utilized park, has a lot to offer. However, be forwarned that this may all change. Plans by the ACOE include raising the water storage capacity, which will flood existing facilities, create huge mud flats and generally disrupt what is currently an excellent outdoor recreation site.

Colorado is a beautiful place but, even here we have some parks that have little to offer. The lake is beautiful but, without a boat offers nothing other than fishing (and there were not fish biting when we went). We contemplated the swim beach but, it was so dirty (goose poo) that we did not want to even try. The... More

Decided to do a little urban camping while in the Denver metropolitan area instead of staying in a hotel. Lots of fresh air and cool evenings around the campsite. Also lots of families enjoying and exposing their kids to the outdoors. Only complaint is the RC (remote control) airplane area being placed adjacent to the camping area. Hearing those whining...

Stayed on the B loop of the campground and had a fantastic time. The modern playground they had in the campground kept my kiddos happy and running around for quite sometime. The bathrooms were clean and some had shower and laundry service available. Hiking trails were paved and we saw two deer with my dogs and kids.

We enjoy a nice bike ride at the Chatfield State Park, but you will want to go during the week and not on the weekend. The park get very busy on the weekends. You do not need a park pass to ride your bike thru the park. We like to take a snack and stop at one of the many... More

Chatfield is big, and has pretty much everything: camping, RV, a GREAT dog park, RC flying area, equestrian opportunities, hot air balloon areas, lake & river fishing, birding, all variety of waterspouts, and more... Chatfield SP can get crowded, but doesn't fill often, and there are always areas with less crowding, especially on the back side (south).
