Cherry creek state park


Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This park is quiet, partly because of the way different camping areas
are laid out to reduce traffic.  It was also far enough from the main
highways that noise was not an issue.

Road and site access/type?
All paved and very nice.  We stayed in a section with all pull-through
sites, at #142.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
We needed our jacks to get perfectly level, but most sites looked close
to level.  Sites are spaced far apart, with a field on the “curb” side that
allows plenty of room for outdoor activities.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full hookup, 50A power was strong, and the water was extremely
high – at least 80psi – so remember your regulator here.  Our Verizon
cell phone and hotspot signal were good.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Each site had both, and they were of good quality.

Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
The bathrooms were modern and clean, as were the showers.  The
individual stalls had benches and plenty of hooks – nice!  No laundry

Pet and/or kid friendly?
Plenty of space and trails to walk dogs on-leash, plus a huge off-
leash area.  This is a large park with lots of areas for family
gatherings and some equipment near the lake for the kids to play on.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
There were many bikers on the park’s main roads during our stay.  It’s
obviously a popular place for bikes.  There were also several trails for
walkers, although no challenging hills that we saw.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
This park is close to everything, including lots of heavy traffic in the
Aurora/Denver area.  Very busy cities, but the park is isolated so well
that you don’t see any of it until you leave the premises.

This was an excellent state park with good security and staffing.  It
seemed like any store I’ve ever heard of was within an easy drive.
Too bad we got rid of our bikes; there were plenty of paths and the
main roads to ride on.  And there were several walking paths, too.
We really liked this park and would return.

Don't be shy, drop us a line.
