Large sites well spaced out. Easy in and out. Utilities work well. Restrooms are clean. Wifi worked well. Good cell reception. Miles of walking/biking paths. Large, nice beach. Laundry facility but be careful sometimes a machine won't work. Coin showers. One of the nicest parks we've ever stayed at. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart, Target a few miles south on Parker.

We love Cherry Creek. So does everyone else because it is hard to get a reservation during peak season, especially on the weekend. In fact, we've been staying there for a few weeks but have to leave during the weekends because it's all pre-booked. The sites are beautiful and there are lots of walking and bike trails. We stayed in Buffalo loop and did notice coyotes, so keep your pets on a leash and with you at all times! The only thing stopping me from giving this park a 10 star review is that they will not open up the group camping areas for overflow on the weekends. They just sit unused which seems like such a waste. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Exactly what I want in a park...quiet, natural setting in or near an urban center. Site 25 on Coyote Loop in probably the best in the park. It's a handicapped site with a nice deck, table and fire ring. There are no close neighbors and it backs on the preserve with lots of wildlife. Satellite is kind of tricky with trees. Good Verizon and AT&T 4G signals.
Worst part, you can only stay 14-consecutive days. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Easy access to and in the campground with our extra large 40'+ Big Rig RV. Pretty setting and quiet at night. Rate reflects $26 camping rate + $10 reservation fee + $9 daily vehicle fee. Very nice bathhouses but wasn't impressed by the pay showers; fifty cents per three minutes is somewhat over the top. Great AT&T and Verizon signal. Most sites suitable for satellite; check map when reserving for tree cover. We would return. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring mosquito spray. Evening walk around the campground resulted in bites each night.

We stay here for most of our trips to Denver to visit family. A great park with great service, large spaces and well maintained. We only give it a nine because to us the 10 is for the perfect parks, which we have not yet found. Anyway we will always stay here when in the Denver area and would recommend it highly. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very pleasant oasis in the city. Very quiet even on a holiday weekend. Mostly decent asphalt access roads. Big rig access good except for the occasional tree needing trimming and the entrance station. Both lanes at the entrance station are rather narrow but doable with care in big rig. Sites are level concrete pads for rig, gravel patio with fire pit and picnic table. Grass and trees surround the sites with good separation between sites. Lots of paths for walking and biking. The RTD light rail station is a 1.5 mile walk along the trails. Power ok even under load, water 85psi, sewer ok. Wifi was good for a campground even when the campground full. Verizon was 3 bars, but did not check speed. Satellite access depends on site chosen. No onsite recycle. State park fees are assessed on top of campground fees ($63 for a week). We will stay here again. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 45' motorhome. We had a 100' long pull-thru site that partially shaded. The roads in and out of the campground can accomodate any size RV. Most of the sites are huge. Water, sewer and electric were all good and located perfectly. The state park is huge, with many things to do, including bicycling, hiking and boating. We also paid a $10 transaction fee to reserve a site. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Colorado has some of the nicest state parks in the country and Cherry Creek is no exception. Beautiful campground with spacious sites. Some shade and some open. Easy access for Big Rigs. Beginning in June the campground is busy all summer. We were lucky to snag four nights mid week at the last minute. Unless you book months in advance it is nearly impossible to get a site here or in some of the other state parks on weekends. Midweek is easier. Excellent facilities and great walking and bike trails. WiFi not strong but Verizon signals were good. Only about 10 miles from downtown Denver. Will stay here again.

This is a wonderful state park, with paved roads and concrete pads for parking. Each site is quite a distance from the next site, which is wonderful, and each has a gravel patio with a picnic table. It is primarily a destination park for local people who come for the swimming beach and boating. Reservations can be made six months in advance and local people book up many of the summer weekends. We had to move sites three times in order to stay a week. The campground is very quiet during the day. We were in the Gold Rush Loop, which has less shade than the other loops but where most sites accommodate satellites. On Friday and Saturday night there was annoying music from a nearby club but otherwise the park was quiet at night. There is good access from I-225, but traffic in the Denver area is horrific. The train station is nearby but is only good for going to the city center. Otherwise you need to make a connection at the city center and go out to other destinations, which is quite time consuming. Excellent for bicycle riding. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground while in town for a family reunion. It was convenient for our purposes. Sites were large and shaded. Grass needed mowing. There was a $10 fee for reserving online and a $9 daily access fee for entering the park, making this a pricey stay. Also, the lines entering the park on the weekends are very, very long, so if you leave to do anything outside the park, it takes a long time to get back to your site. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a great site, lots of space. It was quiet and we love Cherry Creek. There are lots of trails for walking, and the lake provides swimming, boating, and fishing for those who want those activities.

Our only complaints were the dead trees that should have been cut down and removed and the terrible roads. It takes money to repave the roads, but they have plenty of staff to cut down the trees. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Most sites are level and long. Many pull-thru sites. Utilities worked well. We were in the Buffalo loop and the WiFi was fine. Slow at times but pretty good most of the time (note you may need to reenter your password each time your computer goes to sleep). We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Made reservation on line, then when entering the park we were hit with an extra $9/day for the car we were towing.

It is like camping in a prairie because they do not mow the open areas. However, the site was paved, level, with very nice fine gravel patio. Internet service is non-existent except near the office. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

As far as a Western state park goes this one is exceptional. No, you don't back up to a beautiful lake or mountain vista. But trees can be pretty hard to come by in Colorado and camp sites can be bunched on top of one another. This is the refreshing exception and the reason why Cherry Creek State Park is so highly rated. My wife and I live a grand total of fifteen minutes from this campground, and although the park is right on a major state highway, you'd never know it once you're settled in to your site. We stayed on the Coyote Loop which is one of the best as you back in to a berm surrounded by trees and would never know that you're in a major metropolitan area. Bring your bicycles as there are extensive bike trails throughout the park. (This is Colorado, you know, where the old joke really is true that the bike on top of the car is worth more than the car itself.) Bring your pistols and long rifles as there is an excellent shooting range in the park. There's a wonderful marina located close by, also inside the park. There is a well-maintained horse stable in the park, so dedicate one afternoon for a trail ride. Bring your dogs: there's an extensive off-leash "run 'em ragged" section as well. The wi-fi is marginal, and at times will go down completely, but hey! This is a government facility. What do you expect? For many a Denver-area resident this is an opportunity to "get away" while still being literally only minutes from home. For out-of-towners this is how you can be in the midst of metropolitan Denver and still have a campground retreat. The sites are level and uniformly well maintained. We have friends locally who come to Cherry Creek every year and wouldn't miss it. We love this park. There's a good reason why you have to reserve your sight well in advance. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Truck Camper.
