In the heart of it all, lies the jewel of Colorado State Parks

Welcome to Denver’s natural and spacious backyard playground. There’s so much to see and enjoy. Summers are busy and action packed while off-peak times are quiet and laid back. Anchored around an 880-surface-acre reservoir, the park offers a natural prairie environment of gentle, rolling hills and complete outdoor recreation facilities, including camping, picnicking and facilities for group events.

Every summer weekend, end your day at the campground amphitheater for an enlightening and entertaining chat around the campfire, ghost stories, critter tales and more. Most talks begin at 7:00 pm.
