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. We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great clean city park, and value for the location. Park is about 3o minutes from denver, only 10 minutes to red rocks amphitheater. Close to major highways, restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Electric only sites, although there is water spickets throughout the park, if you get lucky can just run a hose over and fill up your tank. Cell service worked great for At&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Sites are very large with fire pits and a picnic table. Tons of walking and biking trails surrounding the park A.so borders a golf course, which has a walking/biking path that runs through it. We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you come to the park after 8:00 PM, the entrance/exit is actually right off highway 470. Others wise the main entrance is of morrison ro (co-8).

Again, this is a difficult place to describe. We had 50 amp electric but no water (they have a fill up station). No sewer but there is a dump. If you want a pull-thru, the sites are way in the back. The closest restroom was a vault toilet. Stinky and full of flies. Disgusting. The campground is quite a ways in from the park entrance. We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is located in the back of a very large county park with lots of activities such as horseback riding, archery, swimming, etc.

At first glance i didnt care much for the park, but it started to grow on me each day. The campground has no shade nor privacy. It does have nice sized sites and they are level. Just electricity but water is avaibile in the campground. Great biking and walking trails. There are horse stables and an archery range. Its in a good location to make day trips. We would stay here again. We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this place, see my previous review. Park is now taking online reservations-a must for weekends & summer. You can't make same day reservations online, but if you get there before 4pm go straight to the Visitor Center (not the front ranger booth) where staff can put you in a site, if available. Midweek you can usually find a spot same day. Don't arrive after 4pm & expect to get a site, as ranger at entrance can't do that, the booth doesn't even have a computer to see if there is availability! We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Owned and operated by the City of Lakewood (near the foothills, west of Denver). Recently remodeled with large, reasonably level sites and a new dump station. Water skiing at Little Soda Lake, swimming/windsurfing at Big Soda Lake, boating/fishing at Bear Creek Reservoir, horseback riding and archery range. Convenient to Bandimere Speedway and Red Rocks Amphitheatre (well worth a visit). I would have given it a 9 if shade trees were available. Water is generally available, however most water spouts do NOT have threads (for a hose), except at the water fill-up station. We camped at Bear Creek Lake Park, Indian Paintbrush Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
