“Outdoor fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We spend the summer at the beach--the Bear Creek Lake Park beach, that is. It's a great place to relax and enjoy spacious skies, a view of the mountains, and water fun, but without having to travel far. There are bike trails, hiking trails, picnicking areas, and all sorts of fun outdoor activities at this park. Only $5 per car to get in, too.

“Raised daily fee 2$ to 7$”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I'm not happy they raised the fee by two dollars in one year. This is ludacrus ,you can't even access the whole lake by car .The State Parks all raised their rates the last few years but in 1 dollar increments and they have way more access , no longer a deal for seniors either.Fishing is very limited to one side of the lake unless you want to walk thru marsh lands.They made this no longer affordable for retired people .I will be going here less this year . Greedy Lakewood !

“Great Mountain biking and hiking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Lots of great trails from easy to very challenging. Close in to Denver so you don't have to travel far. Nice lakes with some reportably good fishing although I didn't get the opportunity to wet a line

We love to kayak at Bear Creek Lake Park. It's local, peaceful and well-maintained. Can't wait for the 2013 kayaking season!

“Fun, relaxing any season”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

A great bbq place for groups. Some can go swimming, others running, others biking, kids can play at the (rough) swim beach or the river, some can rent canoes or paddle boats or windsurfs. A great park.
