Very spacious and nice park. Lots of room between sites. Stayed in both pull through and back-in and no problems with either. Nice trails and lake on site. Only issue is with reservations. If you want to stay more than 2 days, you will have to reserve way in advance or you will be moving around sites. Seems like with today's technology, they should have a better reservation system. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Located near Aurora which has its conveniences. However, if you want to get to the mountains it a challenge with Denver traffic. Chatfield State park is more convenient if you are going to be going to the mountains more often during your stay.

I'm not sure it will let me review a park we haven't actually stayed in...just tried to make a reservation. First, you cannot make a reservation with less than 3 days advance notice. Secondly, the $30 rate for a full hookup with an 80' pullthrough which sounds very nice also has an additional $10 added for actually MAKING THE RESERVATION. Thirdly, there is a $9 charge each day for your tow vehicle or a toad, and that is for each vehicle. You can buy a pass for $70 something and avoid the $9 per day charge. You CANNOT call the State Park itself to make a reservation...it is a first come, first served park if you want to take a chance on arriving and finding a site. I talked to a rep in the office who was very nice, and asked about any places around there to ride a motorcycle and she said the traffic is very heavy around the park, but very nice inside the actual park. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice Colorado State Park. 80 ft. level concrete pull thru full hookup 30/50 amp sites. Located near Denver and in a large park with lake and other activities including fishing, boating, trails etc. Is always full during the summer so make reservations early. They charge $9.00 for a daily vehicle permit ($70.00 annual if you are staying 10 or more nights). We were only charged one fee even though in a motorhome with toad. Others were charged twice for "anything with an engine" which is ridiculous. Would stay here again. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Cherry Creek State Park campground for 9 days starting on 25 May 2018. We've stayed here many times before and have always found it to be an excellent location, never had any complaints. The reason for my 3 star service rating is because while they were cutting the grass (and overall it was neatly maintained) around our trailer, the grass (or should I say weeds), were very high and that lead to a bunch of mosquitoes being all around our trailer all day and night. It was just about impossible to go outside of the trailer without dousing yourself with bug spray. In all, the other times we've stayed at this park this has never happened and in walking around the camp, the bugs seemed to just reside around our spot. To me, this was clearly due to the Camp not keeping up with the cutting as they should. Other than feeling like we were human bug food, it was a very good stay and I would strongly recommend this park to anyone staying in the Denver area. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall a very nice state park. Plenty of trails for hiking and biking. Sites are concrete pads and level. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Firewood can be purchased at the office for $5.00. Sewer connection is at the back of site so a long hose is required. Lots of over the air channels,we lost count after 43. Wifi signal is only strong near the check-in office or the restrooms throughout the park. The other RVers in this loop were very quiet, no barking dogs. There is also a laundromat with vending machines with ice cream and other snacks. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here in February, campground was full! Very nice, new facilities. Beware, restrooms are only open from 7 am to 8 pm during the winter. Lots of open space and hiking trails. Saw four coyotes and a bald eagle on our second day, which is kind of weird in an area surrounded by freeways. Make sure you ask for the WiFi password when you enter at the gate.

A very nice urban campground. Decent asphalt access roads, a bit tight around the gatehouse for big rigs. Level, paved sites are generally widely spaced surrounded by low vegetation, grass, some trees. Some sites with lots of shade some with none. Level concrete pads, gravel patios, fire pit/barbie, picnic table. Miles of road bike trails within the park connecting to more miles outside the park. Around 1.5m walk to light rail station with frequent service to downtown. Power ok even under heavy load, water ok, sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with mostly decent speeds. Verizon 2-3 bars with moderate to sluggish speed, TMobile was 4 bars with decent speed. Satellite access is site dependent. No recycle on site. We will stay here again. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

State park fees are on top of camping fees so longer stays are better off getting an annual pass.

Cherry Creek is truly an oasis on the south side of Denver. Campsites are very large and spacious - probably the most space of any campground we've been to. They are arranged in circles around large grass areas with lots of large shade trees. All or most of the full hook-up sites have level, nicely paved pads. Each site has a nice large picnic table and clean fire pit. We didn't use the group sites, but there are 3 large campground circles for medium to large groups of RVs and tents - very nice and private if you're with others. The only negative is the traffic noise. The traffic on Rt 225 is fairly loud in the morning and rush hours. High powered boats on the lake can be very loud too. Although neither of these was a deal breaker. We will definitely come back to Cherry Creek. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here many times over the years and it is a very good park. I do have a few negative comments this year. The restroom buildings are closed twice a day for cleaning. This makes sense. But the laundry is in one of those buildings and closing it for an hour at 10 am and another hour at 3 pm while people are washing and drying is very inconvenient. Never seen such a thing. There are a large number of dead trees that are ugly and should be removed. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were pleasantly surprised that this bit of paradise can be so close to Denver. The campground was quiet and beautiful with the Rocky Mountains in the back ground and the city skyline between you and the mountains. The sunsets were amazing. The campsite was an awesome pullthru concrete pad. It was extra long so we could have our tow vehicle and trailer all fit into the site with ease. The one downside is that the campground charges you 50 cents for 3 minutes of showers. So bring your quarters with you to the shower. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the most beautiful parks we've stayed in. It's a gem in the city, really. The sites are HUGE, clean, paved pad, grass, FHU....and we got great tv antennae stations! The workampers do a fabulous job getting every site ready before the customer arrives. The park is huge. Beware that you must also pay a daily pass fee in addition to the nightly camping fee. ($9) We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is on the SE side of the metro Denver area and close to shopping and most anything you'd want. Although traffic in Denver is always a challenge, 225 has been completed since the last time we were here.

We are new to CO from MN, and this was our first stay in a CO state park campground. We're fans! The sites were huge and many (including ours) had a nice retaining wall area that was packed sand and housed the picnic table and fire pit. The utilities all worked well and the rangers and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Sites were immaculate, as were the general grounds and bathroom/shower facilities. Though we didn't use one, I was especially impressed with the group sites. They had multiple power hookups, a kitchen facility with granite countertops and running water, and bathrooms/showers. The one downside to our site (#139) was there there was no shade, but that was just poor choosing on our part as there are many shade sites available. We especially enjoyed the many miles of trails and the close proximity to the lake (less than a 5 minute walk from our site). We've already booked several return trips! We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an awesome campground. This was our second stay and we love it. It is spacious and quiet. We had a patio and table and fire ring.

The state park is neat and clean, sites are policed after each camper. My only complaint regards the daily pass, don't know why they don't just include it in the cost of camping instead of making it an extra fee at check-in. We enjoyed our two day stay and wished we had made our reservation for a longer stay. They do have sites reserved for walk-ins but the rules are about impossible: you have to put your name on the list at 0800, come back at 1300 to see if you can get a site. If you do get one, it is good for one day and you must do the whole thing all over again the next day, way too much of a hassle. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
