“Nature near the city”

Reviewed Jan 01, 2018

Very central to Denver, and a pretty park with the reservoir and lots of trails for walking or biking. This is our favorite spot to stay when we're visiting the city. There are several full hook up loops, a dry camping loop, and very clean laundry and shower facilities. Get reservations, this place is basically always full in season an... more

We wanted to be in Denver for the bike (bicycle) races in August, and what better way to do that than to camp somewhere we could bike directly from our campsite to the races? We stayed at Cherry Creek one night last winter for a quick overnight, but it was nice to be back in the summer to see what else the park has to offer. We were ab... more

“Bike to Denver!”

Overall Rating

Work brought us to Denver, and we needed easy access to downtown for a week. While I have not "commuted" to work in a while, this was one of the best work commutes I could have asked for. 14 miles on a protected bike path all the way into downtown Denver! But if you rather, the drive takes ~30 minutes outside of rush hour. The park ma... more

My first impression was this is in the city of Denver? Honestly, you would never know it. The campsites are big, level, and very neatly cleaned. The facilities are amazing (fishing, boating, horse back riding, shooting sports, hiking, and much more).

Pulled in very late night, there were no maps so finding camping and our way around was confusing. Camping is listed at $28/ night, but that doesn't include the daily park fee of $9/day. In addition, you have to pay to use the dog area, and pay for the showers. They also advertise wifi but tell you not to download anything. We were goi... more

When one is accustomed to dispersed camping or primitive camping in the national forest than one may expect the low pricing in a state park, however, their services, staffing and budget come from our entrance fees, camping fees and so on. There is a $9 daily fee charged at the main gate plus the camping fee. My suggestion is a yea... more

Cherry Creek State Park offers a great combination of location, price, hookups, and site-size! The location is convenient, with the entrance to the park less than a mile from I-225, and plenty of stores, restaurants, theaters, etc. nearby since the park is in the middle of the suburbs.

You would never know you were in the middle of Denver staying in this park. It is an oasis of nature in the middle of a sprawling suburban city. The campsites are pretty well spread out and very well maintained. They even have two laundry facilities on-site which was an unexpected surprise. There is a large trail system that runs ... more

It's kind of hard to remember that this park is in the middle of the city. It's large and there is a lot of green space. One of our favorite things was the HUGE (107 acres) dog park. It's $2 a day/$20 annual to use it, but if your dogs like to run off leash, they will be so happy. In early summer, Cherry Creek is running through it and... more
