I have lived downstream of the park for 20 years and have ridden my mountain bike in the park for that long. The park facilities are well maintained and the trail system is very well put together. My wife and I kayak/SUP in the park. Summer weekends in the park get very busy.

Dinosaur Ridge is right next door to this amazing park, and our summer camp students rave about being able to explore their Visitor Center and trails! Ecology and the local flora and fauna are very important, and Bear Creek Lake Park staff and rangers have an awesome variety of programs that we recommend experiencing!

It's very clean and beautiful, with much to do. The number one drawback is the $10 entry fee. I'd suggest spending the money on a state park pass and going to Chatfield or Roxboro

This is a very good place to take out your paddleboard and cruise around on the lake with no motor boats to contend with. On a reasonably cool or overcast day it's perfect to be out on the water. It's relatively isolated from roads and highways, but right in town. You can also take your mountain bike on a great... More

We returned after trying other places near and North of Denver. We vacation in Colorado at least once per year. We came hear two years ago and had been to others in the area, but we liked this best.

This is such a great local spot. There are so many activities for the whole family. It is also a great place to jog or ride bikes. It is my favorite trail for a daily walk or run!

After seeing crazy pricing in the mountains for water sports we found this little gem which is an amazing city park. Nice patrons, friendly staff, and tons of activities to choose from. We spent two days here, much to our surprise!!

We just love coming here to camp and enjoy the beach. The campground is clean and quiet. The beach is relaxing and kept very clean.
