“Lots of Variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This park is close to Denver and the Front Range. There's a lot to do there from boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing in the lake to hiking, camping and enjoying the dog park. It's a large expanse with quite a bit of variety.

“Lots to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Want to go to the beach? Chatfield is the place in Denver where you can swim at a beach, go horseback riding, see some balloons lift off, and camp overnight. It's a stone's throw from Denver, so you can also go for the day and be in bed by dark.

“Multi relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Boating, jet skiing and horseback riding are just several of the many activities you can partake. The water is clean and all sorts of watercraft is available to rent. There is a fee for this state park and it is well maintained.

“Jeffco Aeromodelers Club at the model airplane field within the park.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The field is a great place to fly with two runways, shelter, picnic tables and restrooms. Very busy at times. Would have given a better rating but there are a few club members who enforce 'do as I say, not as I do'. By this I mean that they can sometimes play by their own rules (fly out of bounds, over the runways, over the pits. etc....) but don't dare break their rules! If you can fit in with the 'good ol' boy's club' you will be fine.

“Horseback riding here is the best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

There is so much to do in this park. They have air baloons, swimming, boating, remote control airplanes are flown here and the best horse back riding! We saw coyotes, baby coyotes and prairie dogs when we went out horseback riding. It does cost about 8 dollars a day to go into the park, but it is well worth it!!
