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...

We were just out on the lake last week , took our kayaks out . It's nice to paddle around and enjoy the outdoors of this great state . I do wish the people with motor boats would be a little more careful of the people in kayaks and canoes ! We often fish in some of the little coves... More

Chatfield State Park is a great park here in Colorado. It's located south of the Denver metro area with two main entrances. The south entrance can be entered from Denver by taking I-25 south to C-470, then West to Santa Fe (highway 85), head south on Santa Fe to Titan Parkway and go West on Titan Parkway until you see...

The Park Rangers are a Joke! if camping don't laugh, giggle, fart, or close your camper/motor home door after 10:00 pm, or you will have them at your camp in full force with weapons and citations ready to discharge. I find it amazing that they can represent Colorado and troubling that the state allows them to carry firearms. I watched... More

This review is about the stables not the park itself. I boarded 2 horses at Chatfield Stables for a year. Within that year I documented several incidents where my horses were not receiving the care I was paying for. I have found mine and other horses with little to no water. They hay Bob buys is not the best quality... More

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.
