  • We broke in our new truck and camper here. It was about what I'd expected really being long time Colo residents. This isn't much of a kids place however. I would say this is more for fishing and boati...  more »
  • We camped here over Labor Day weekend. We like the spots in the loops because they are pretty big for our group of 20+. This park has flushing toilets and quarter operated showers. I like coming here ...  more »

  • I have grown up going to the lake and seen go through many changes since the 80s . It is improving every year. Well except for that that big carp die out this year that was pretty gross. I would love to see more hiking trails with educated signs maybe explaining what type of grasses or what type of birds you're seeing. And have you ever thought about and adding like a bandstandand having local bluegrass bands play Or other bands it doesn't have to be bluegrass, Just a thought.
  • We had a ladies only camped here with of course our kiddos last month, and we all had a great time. The beach area was great to play and just have fun for our little ones. They have convenient store for your convenience of course. They have fishing and you can also boat if you like. The park was clean and most importantly is we all feel safe...park ranger were out and about the area at night for a check. I felt very safe and we all had fun in our first camp experience 👍👍
  • I just got back and I have to agree with others from Denver - not worth the drive :( Aurora Reservoir and Soda Lakes by Morrison are much nicer. First off, big dead carp on the beach and even when I moved that off, there was still dead fish smell. The water is green and not clear. I was wondering if it was just a bad day, but two residents of Wiggins told me this was a good year. This was probably the biggest drawback in my book. There was NO ranger in sight on any part of the swim beach the 4 hours we were there. Thus people have some loud music, smoke weed and have their dogs in the water. Will never go back as they are better, closer places to go to.
  • If you have never been on a lake," On The Plains so to speak", then you should not be posting your comments here. This Lake provides a much needed getaway for the farming community that has built its life around it. If you would like a "Colorado" getaway and no nothing about this great state, I would agree that this is not the place for you.
  • Less crowded, great swim beach, not too far of an escape from Denver. Camping doesn't really provide shade but day trips are easy for a hot day without the crowds of the Platte and Boulder Res.
