Wonderful State Park close to Denver

We absolutely love coming here. There are great mountain biking trails, a nice river to wander alongside and the birding is fantastic if you enjoy watching the feathered critters... read more

The reservoir can be very crowded, especially on the weekends. Water can be very choppy, so water sports are not always the best. But you can hang out in the no wake zone and party and people watch!

The Park is very nice and on a lake. However, one has to pay $8 just to drive through on top of the $24 for the site, so $32. Apparently this is true of all state parks in Colorado. We only stayed one night here.

We absolutely love coming here. There are great mountain biking trails, a nice river to wander alongside and the birding is fantastic if you enjoy watching the feathered critters flitting about. For bikers, there is free parking outside the park on Deer Creek Canyon Road, then you can ride into the park for free. We don't typically participate in watersports... More

We have been coming here for years and making memories with our kids as the grew. From camping to fishing to biking to boating to bird watching to swimming to just relaxing on the beach. One of my favorite places close to home.

I camped at this wonderful park for many years with my grandparents and father. With them all passed on now I find myself back at this park annually for even just a simple bike ride. There is a little bit of home in this place and for all that its natural beauty shares. Enjoy it and check out some of... More

Close to the Denver Metro area this park is very busy most of the year. It has boating with a great marina, hiking, great fishing, horse back riding, biking, a big dog park and there is even a fish hatchery. You can reserve and rent a private picnic area for your family or company outing. They also have several large... More

Beautiful state park with lake access, hiking trails, picnic areas, great views. There is a little something for everyone here.Floods took their toll in the spring of 2015, but mostly cleaned up now.

I first visited Chatfield Park after a visit to Squirrel Creek Wildlife Rescue. They are surrounded by the park and love their mission. Chatfield Park has a small lake and you will encounter friendly people everywhere. The camp grounds are clean and well kept. The park has easy access and is wonderful for those wanting to spend a nice day... More

Chatfield Stables is a (private?) horse stable run on the property of Chatfield State Park. They run trail rides as long as it's not too cold. We went on a pleasantly mild November day, and had three wranglers with us, two teenage employees plus one who was the lead wrangler. They did a nice job of setting us up with... More

Make your reservations way ahead of time. We have season passes and they don't help out with anything. Mostly managed by h.s. kids who don't give a damn. No pun intended.
