  • I have reviewed this before. I live within 3 miles of Cuivre River State Park, so I know you have the spelling wrong.. I drive through this park at least once a week.

  • Wow. Just wow. The grounds are clean, sites are spacious, the bathhouse is cleaned regularly, staff is friendly, playground is perfect, views are amazing, and prices for sites are more than reasonable. We will absolutely be frequent guests.
  • Tackled the Blazing Star Trail at the recommendation of the fantastic woman at the Visitors Center (sorry I didn't catch her name!). The trail had everything that we were hoping. Woods, tallgrass prairie, some elevated areas and had there been water, a creek valley that the trail crossed several times. Good hiking shoes and a walking stick are a must! Will go again. The fall colors are amazing right now.
  • We went today and did the Big Sugar Creek trail. There was barely any water in the creek but the leaves changed color already and the hike was beautiful. There were a lot of loose rocks and rugged surfaces throughout the 3.6 mile loop so would definitely need good shoes.
  • Took an overnight backpacking trip here. The lakes are nice, and trails are easy to follow and well maintained. The only part I didn’t like were the trail crossovers at the roadways. I just prefer to stay in the woods for my hike.
  • I hiked the Lone Spring Trail with a group of guys and had a great time. The trail starts at the Lone Wolf Trail head and takes you to a great camp site on top of a ridge 2 miles from the parking spot.
