  • Spent several hours riding around, walking, sitting and watching wildlife. This park is gorgeous and there are lots of things to do: boat, shoot, bike, hike, walk, boat, model airplanes. We spent the ...  read more »
  • This place is my favorite place to go to get away from the city atmosphere, without the long drive out of town. I love running here. There are options to stay on paved trails, or to hit some dirt path...  read more »
  • I take my grandson camping here often. It's so convenient. Nice beach and great bike trails. Lots to do here! Another great Colorado State Park! 
  • To the two ladies that work behind the desk in the Park Office. . Absolutely top notch nicest, most helpful two gals I ever met. Cameron and Cassie (at the East Boat Ramp) also exceptionally friendly and professional. Careful the Rangers on the Lake! Wanna-be cops, like to harass folks.
  • Beautiful park with lots of space and options to enjoy a day, weekend or week. Lines can get long - so on weekend arrive early or get a state park pass to avoid the lines.....
  • It was very nice but the park rangers were a little disrespectful. We stayed at the camp site and just before checkout our car battery died. One of the rangers kept asking us to hurry and leave without offering any help. She then banned us from ever staying there again. After we got our car started we ended up spending a few hours at the lake, which was relaxing.
  • We use this park mainly for the off-leash dog area. The park is great, the water section is really great. One thing to be aware of is there's no shade whatsoever.
  • This will always be the park I grew up with. Boating is great on this Reservoir and it's never too crowded to get up on some water skis or a raft to have a good time. The shooting range is excellent and everyone there is very helpful. As well as the bike trails are fantastic along with the running trails I have no bad things to say about this park except for its swim Beach which is entirely too crowded and you will never be able to find a table.
