The staff at the visitor centre were really helpful and friendly and gave me a good idea of where to go. I had a great walk on a very nice day - felt a combination of altitude and jet lag as it was my first day in Colorado. Drove up to the view point at 9000 ft recommended by the volunteers at the visitor centre - great views of the Rockies

We love to camp there whenever possible. The campgrounds are level and there are electric hookups. The bathrooms and showers are modern and very clean. The views from the park are beautiful, with panoramic views of the continental divide. There are many good hiking trails as well. The ranger talks at night are usually informative and fun. One of our favorite parks in Colorado!

Great close to Denver camping, the view from Panorama point is one of the best no hike views around. Mountain bike Lion clockwise, run it counter clockwise.

beautiful area, lots of hiking trails, great area to see fall colors with lots of aspen trees. very close to downtown golden, where there is lots to do. local area is full of interesting things to do, old mines, casinos close by. Very close to the epicenter of gold mining in the 1800's so there is alot to see and do.

The weather was cold and windy when we visited the park while on a drive around Colorado to see fall colors .. however, it was absolutely beautiful.
The welcome center is full of things to explore and the fish pond was a hit with my kids. We drove around the perimeter on Mountain Base Road and stumbled upon one of the most beautiful overlooks we've found so far.
