It is a beautiful park and campground. Sites are level and very spacious. My site (195) was shaded back-in but still had satellite reception. Roads are wide and easy to maneuver. There is a very nice off leash dog park that had mostly large dogs (swimming, etc) but all were well behaved. Check-in is a little time consuming. If you do not have a park pass you wait in one line to be told to go to park reservations office to check in where you wait in another line to purchase your pass plus obtain your toad pass. Very congested area but am told they are building a new area for campground check-in. Lots of construction at the north end of the park, but it does not affect the campgrounds if you enter through the Titan Parkway/Roxborough Park Rd entrance. Be sure to read directions on your confirmation. Very busy; get a reservation early. - Freedom Bus

Chatfield is one of our favorites in the US. Paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. The work campers rake the rocks and clean the sites after each camper leaves. We did not use restrooms. WiFi worked great the entire two weeks we were there. Lots of OTA channels and wide open to receive satellite. Strong Verizon signal. D loop is very big rig friendly. Sites are large and offer some privacy. As others have mentioned there is a construction project going on to increase the water level of the reservoir. It doesn't really affect the campground and we never heard it but when going out the west entrance you do drive through it. Bigger rigs must enter on the east side but that is stated in your confirmation. Huge dog park that you can drive to. We'll be back. - thekites

This is a great park. Hard to believe it is so handy to Denver. Paved roads. Concrete pad sites. Picnic table. Fire ring. Sites are well spaced apart by natural environment. Great family destination for a weekend of camping. Great for overnight stay if passing through Denver. Very big rig friendly. Very well maintained park. Will definitely return. - WinnMac

We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

Location was good for us visiting family in the area. As others have stated, the speed bumps in the park are jarring. Our site was VERY tight, and there was a puddle of water to the rear left of the site. I suspect the puddle was from their sprinkler system leak. We parked our tow vehicle perpendicular to the RV in front, and had just enough room. This is essentially a mobile home park that has a limited number of sites for transients. We had no problems here, and it was pretty quiet during our 3 night stay. - novastorm

I stayed at South Park twice in a two week period and I will NEVER stay there again.
A Walmart parking lot would be a much better place than here.
Both times I was treated rudely by the groundskeepers and swore at twice by them!
And, when I went to the office to ask for one more night they brought up my reservation on the office computer, then said..."Sorry, we are all booked up until next spring!"
So I said, "Well, I guess I have to leave in the morning.", to which the park manager said "Yup!"
Well, at my next stop the very next night I was looking at my paperwork and realized that I had indeed already paid for that night...but they just let me go and still haven't refunded me for the extra night they charged me for.
I have several friends that live there and have been told that since I left 3 1/2 weeks ago nobody has been in the site I was in both times.
The park is very nice, laundry facilities are good and the swimming pool is awesome, but the RV spaces are so close and tight to back into, plus there are cars and trucks parked in the street that makes backing into the sites even more difficult since the sites are barely long enough for the RV's, let alone the tow vehicle.
30 amp plug was loose and had to use a padlock to hold my surge protector plug from falling out. Found out later that it is against park rules to padlock the power pole.
Plus, the pool and laundry room closes at 8 pm...hardly enough time for travelers to take advantage of these amenities.
It is almost like they really don't want RV'ers to stop there...only year round residents! - John_D

The only thing this place has going for it is their location. Staff are rude, people are rude, the facilities are dirty and the place has gone to hell in a hand-basket. I wonder if the owners truly know what's going on. - Randall S

We are at Cherry Creek State Park right now. Staying four nights to see kids, grandkids, neices and nephews before heading up in the mountains for a week. Cool park in the middle of the city. Other than occasional traffic noise you wouldn't know you were in a metropolitan area. Facilities are excellent. There is a maintenance guy that cleans every site after someone leaves. Fire pit was cleaned and the gravel patio area raked prior to our arrival. Our site has a level concrete pad. Lots of green space between sites. As others have lamented, there is a $9 per day charge for park access on top of camping fee. What really galled me though was having to put quarters in the machine to take a shower. :~) - KCSA75

Made reservations back in January for our two week stay here. As everyone says, it's paved and clean, a beautiful park and so close to Denver. Our site had a slight view of the mountains and great sunsets. We also had cottonwood trees providing shade. About half the sites have shade trees and the others do not. We could not use satellite but many sites could. Lots of OTA stations. Nice laundry room and machines were $1.50 each. Wifi actually worked well our entire stay. Verizon signal was LTE but sure seemed slow at times. Buffalo and Abilene Loops are closest to the swim beach. As you look at the campground map the center of the loops are all large grassy areas with shade trees which is very nice. Sites are spacious. Great place to walk dogs. Very large off-leash park too. We would return. - thekites

Price is for full hookups and reflects the $9.00/day day-use fee that they charge in addition to what is paid in advance online. This park is a true gem in the middle of a very busy, crowded, noisy city. The sites are well spaced with concrete pads. Our site was level side-to-side, but had quite a slope towards the front. Very nice picnic tables and fire rings. Laundry facilities are an unexpected find in a state park, $3.00 washed and dried a load, change machines were also appreciated. The only negative is that extra $9.00 per day charge for the day use facilities that we didn't use. It makes me wonder why they don't charge the day use people $30.00 for the camping facilities that they don't use too. - LMH

This park is truly a hidden gem! We never expected to have a campground in the city where you can't even see the city. This is a huge city park with lots and lots to do in it. They have horses, boat rentals, beach, lots of trails and biking. Electric only sites. Good cell coverage. The sites are HUGE. Easy to get to from C-470 There is a little noise from the C-470 traffic, but we didn't notice it inside. No shade. We would definitely stay here again. - jacknpeg

Our site was very spacious and level. The road is paved and well maintained. It is an easy ride into Denver. 2600 acres just outside a big city -- great combination. The down side is if you have dogs, which we do. There isn't really any grass; it is brush, which is cut back for the sites. My dogs didn't like walking on it. There is also some foxtail around, which can be dangerous for a dog if it gets in its eye or nose, so you have to be careful. Still, it's a terrific value and we would definitely return. - Dapper

Wide gravel site. All interior roads paved and well maintained. Dump station and water fill station easily accessible to 45' motor home. Dumpsters scattered throughout park. - blumarlin

This is a great place to stay in Denver. The sites are spacious and the pads are concrete. It has beautiful views of the mountains and very close to the PX and commissary. A little windy in the afternoons, so you have to keep an eye on your awning. - Raegirl2

Roads are rather narrow to drive and turn. Most people end up driving through part of the dirt. Only nice thing is spots are spacious and the water has been fixed. There are no trees so I bet summers are really hot here. There's not a single thing for young kids to do, no playground or place to play. They end up running around all over. You can tell most people do not clean up after their pets including the camp hosts. The running track was nice to have close by for a morning run. We tried the commissary, but it was small, pricey and not well stocked. There's a Safeway not far down the road. Outdoor rec could do better with taking care of campgrounds in general. - Jay101st

big lots, commissary and BX a short distance away. Free laundry and shower facilities. Gets windy and you have the "sound of freedom" most afternoons. - captaincakes

If you are thinking of staying here after reading these reviews and wondering 'can it be that bad' or 'maybe it has changed' or 'wow there are a lot of picky people' - well you are wrong. Unfortunately I have a 7AM appointment for service on my RV or else we cannot continue our trip and this was the closest RV park with availability otherwise I would just drive away and forget about the 67 dollars it is costing us for the evening. It is dirty, rocky, not pleasant to look at. Twinned up with your neighbors door so no privacy. Literally a parking lot and dirt lot. Some sites have trees but the majority do not. Drove to the nearest grocery store, saw 4 cops patrolling, homeless people living in cart 'forts', teenage kids hanging around in the parking lot doing nothing (would like to say 'hoodlums' or 'gangs' but trying to give them the benefit of the doubt). So far the worst RV park I have ever stayed in, and hoping it stays that way. - rayzorben

The place is nothing but a big dog toilet, with rude hosts to make your stay even more miserable. Do yourself a favor a find somewhere else to stay. - Jonathan H

Whilst not good, this was not the worst we have stayed in! You stay here due to the proximity to the city centre (7 miles) as there are no other parks around. We have friends who live 5 miles away so this was a very convenient location. VERY basic sites - water, electric, sewer. Our site was fairly wide pull-thru on a dirt surface. The people we dealt with were very nice and accommodating (had to get rid of wasps in power box!) NO wi-fi, NO cable but there are plenty of channels. $3 per wash!!! 25c per 5 mins for dryer! We stayed at the back end of the park where it was quite quiet even tho the light rail runs nearby. Reading other reviews, I think this park has been 'cleaned up' a lot with respect to permanents/security etc. Would stay here again if unable to get into State Park, (but just for convenience). - OzFrosty

Location, location. Finding a spot in the Denver area is very hard. This park is near I70 and U.S. 6. Easy to get to most attractions. Tight spaces and a lot of turnover. Very nice picnic area and playground. Odd requirements to register. You must show proof of ins. and regist. for all vehicles. There are gravel pull throughs long enough for most rvs and nearby tow vehicle parking. A downside is little physical security. Park is open at night with no gate. Sheriff patrols occasionally. We had no problems but would have preferred more controls. Limited 50A sites. We would stay here again. - captaincakes

Fairly quiet location. Sites are close together so if you have a bunch of slides on both sides and use your awning you aren't going to be happy. Level gravel site. - mrracechaser
May 2018 - $30.00
We rolled up midweek with no reservations. The amount of paperwork to get a site was crazy. DL, registration, proof of insurance. Then we had to be "escorted" to the pull thru 30 amp site. It must have taken nearly an hour to get from the gate to the site. The site is narrow and water, electric only. Gravel and right on top of the neighbors. - Brian n Barbara

Horrible, horrible place. The biker bar across the street and jake brakes trucks on the street will ruin your stay if the office staff doesn't finish you off first. After traveling the country for two years we have never been treated more rudely anywhere. If you can stay anywhere else in the Denver area we highly recommend you seek out other locations! - Russell01

Tight Tight Tight spaces for Big Rigs! Poorly maintained pads. Our concrete was cracked and broken ALL over and common areas full of huge tree roots and tree stumps from dead trees. Many sites are VERY unlevel. Utility boxes are old and broken. They allow cars to park in the roads between sites which makes for hard maneuvering. Biker bar across street causes major issues with loud music if you are on the side in front of the office. Small pool. This is a really old park. I would not recommend even for an overnight if you have any RV over 35 feet. All pull thru sites are buddy sites, so you share your common area which is very small. - TX Travel Lover

This was the worst RV Park experience I've ever had. I arrived after an 8 hour drive from Albuquerque. They charged my credit card and then led me to my trailer site and I backed in and set everything up. I ran down the street to Camping World to get some supplies and when I returned, the night manager and another trailer were sitting in front of my trailer looking upset. They told me that I was parked in their space and had to move. I said that this was the space that they led me to and I made my reservation 2 months in advance. They told me that they don't reserve particular spaces and I had to move. I asked where I was supposed to move to and they showed me the "overflow" space right next to where I was. On the map it shows the this space as the dog walk and there were obvious signs of much peeing and pooping on the grass. I said that I'm not paying $175 to park 3 nights in the dog toilet. Then I was told that was the only space remaining. I said if you don't reserve particular spaces for anyone, then why does this other trailer get the space that you put me in? They said it was because they are staying 10 nights for $600. So after much yelling and screaming with the front desk, I demanded my money back and left. Never, ever stay at this RV Park! I ended up having to stay in a parking lot since all other RV parks in the Denver metro were full. - Jay Leutwyler

The spaces in this park are very narrow & no space to park tow. My slide was almost touching my neighbor. Couldn't open awning because of closeness. Roads are very narrow & poorly maintained. Many old RV's with people living in them. Have 33 ft. rig & had difficulty getting in spot because of cars parked part way in road. Broke passenger mirror because of this issue. In addition, I did not feel safe here. I am a Thousand Trails platinum limited member & will contact them about my concerns, misleading pictures, & representation of this park. - vickie438

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith

This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943
