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).

Chatfield Dog Park is heaven on earth for dogs and their people. It is about 72 acres that is fenced in and contains trees, brush and two large ponds that dogs can take a swim in. Our family absolutely loves going here with our dogs! $8 to get in to the park and $2 for the dog park.

WOW, what a great experience we had riding horses at the Chatfield Stables. They had dozens of horses that were available to ride. They choose a horse for you based on experience. I got to ride Brownie and my daughter Nacho. This was my daughters first time out and Rachel, our guide/wrangler, made sure it was a wonderful outing for... More

Looking for a morning hike while out of town, this was close and a nice walk. it was just coming out of winter, so everything still kind of run down. Though I imagine this would be a nice green lush area during spring and summer. overall was a good walk around.

Wildlife is abundant and diverse. The Resevoir is very busy in summer months. Plenty of areas with good walking paths. Horseback riding is available.
