Good place to spend the day. Great spot to BBQ and picnic by the water. On weekends and holidays get there early! A few nice little sandy beach spots to relax and some nice camping sites. Nice place to bike ride around the lake.

The campground is always full, so you must reserve months in advance. We just spent two weeks here waiting for our new home to be completed. We moved four times in the park, because they couldn't accommodate us in the same site for two weeks (due to the dates, it was our fault, not theirs). I walked the dog MANY... More

Our first event was the 37th Hobie Day outing with over 200 participants. The weather cooperated with warm temps. We took advantage of the beachfront and were able to enjoy a nice picnic lunch. Ramps down to the water made it easier to navigate the sand with wheelchairs The second outing was near the Lake House. This was much more... More

Good fishing and trails. Cherry Creek is a beautiful site with a wonderful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.

always a good place to go to go boating swimming, I even used to take the dog there. Bring drinks and food but take what you bring back home. This is so don't trash the place for the next person

There are many great things that you can do while visiting here. There is a swimming area, playground, picnic areas, boating dock, and lots of trails with wildlife. In a designated area of the park there is a shooting/ target range. It is a far corner of the park away from everything else and run by several range masters. This... More

May be from drought conditions, but the park is really looking tired and run down. A lot of the picnic areas need to be updated and fixed. Nice lake to go boating or skiing in but can really get crowded with too many boats. Had to hunt around for decent area to have picnic and play around at. Could use... More

I bring my dog to the off leash area once or twice a week. The water is almost always cold, but the dogs love it! There is shallow water for smaller dogs, or those who don't like deep water, and there is deeper water (maybe 3 feet) for the swimmers. There are always people with their pups and trails everywhere!... More

Being so close to the heart of Denver, this state park provides a ton of outdoor options. Enjoy water sports, biking, bird watching and camping to just name a few.

There are so many activities to do here: biking, hiking, camping, picnicing, building sand castles, fishing, boating, and the list goes on! This is the closest there is to a lake in the arid Denver area! Great for families and people of all ages!!!!
