I was actually kind of surprised by how clean this park was given the amount of people that come here, but to me anyways the actual grounds, parking lot, pavilion, and concession area was very clean of trash and debris. Parking is easy and getting to the beach is easy if you are up for a 200 yard walk, so be prepared for that if you have a lot of gear like tents and kids toys. The grassed area in front of the beach is also very well maintained with several large trees for good shade coverage and pretty large open spaces if you have a larger event. The beach and water itself I found to be mostly clean of anything really dangerous like bottles and cans, but its hard to overlook the extensive infestation of seagulls which numbered well over 100. Which also means the beach and water is littered heavily in feathers and bird feces, which can be dangerous if ingested. That only leads me to assume its also soaked into the sand nearby. Water can only filter it so much. The birds tend to congregate in a specific area, so easy to set up away from their area to avoid such problems. The bathrooms and concession area are also pretty nice and clean with a decent menu to choose from for food and drinks with ample place to sit down. Next door is a nice playground to occupy kids while parents can use the bathroom and relax with concessions. Overall for only $8 for the whole day this to me is a pretty good park to visit for water activities and relaxing on a beach or under a nice tree.

Great lake to boat on. They have RV camp site, with electric only. There is a dump station and potable water outlets to fill your fresh water tanks. Lots of play space for kids. There's a beach for those who wish to swim. They also have rentals, jet skis, and maybe even boats. Fees can be found online.

Our 4 and 11 year olds loved to play in the water the most. Great park, eating areas, rentals, swimming area and friendly community park! Lots of room to put tents, kid pools, play sport games. They also have an awesome volley ball court! We will definitely be coming back again. :)

Nice lake with plenty of room. Good beach and reasonably clean grounds. Food and drinks available. Clean bathrooms. No signage posted regarding dogs must be kept on a leash, so my service dog and I got a 50 dollar ticket for playing ball at our picnic site. No warnings, no understanding, no real politeness, doesn't matter that you are a veteran, just take the ticket and shut up by two goons in uniform.

Huge! Beautiful! Close to restaurants! Great and Friendly staff! Many things to do or just sit and enjoy the sound of the birds. I got a bird book from my dad that past last October. That book and the Colorado State Parks have given me a new hobby and a way to get my mind off of my daily problems! This Is Gods Land!
