Typical campground

Pretty standard place. Nothing fantastic one way or another.

Popular and large campground near the lake

As it is very close to the city, the temperature stays consistent with Denver temps. So in the summer, it will not be as cool as some mountain spots. That being said, it is very easy to get to and you’ll have the lake right there to cool off!

Entrance into the state park is about $7/day. There is a dog park within the state park that allows off leash and has some ponds the dogs can swim in. Entrance to the dog park is $2.

Nice level spots

Clean bathrooms. Very friendly attendant. Level primative spots. $26 for primative.

Popular state park camping

Nice campground, well kept. Without a reservation you put your name on a list that they start going through at 1pm to assign sites. As someone tent-camping this is no problem, just takes some time (site assigned ~1.5hours after arrival at 13:20). But be wary if you need certain hookups. that being said, there are no ‘tent only’ sites. The minimum has electric ($26). There are 3 different areas - each has multiple bathhouses, which have coin-laundry available. Showers are coin-operated as well.

Amazing time in a convenient location

We spent almost a week in Chatfield in late July of 2018. The campground and facilities were remarkably clean. The other guests were quiet and friendly and the views are spectacular. Chatfield will always hold a special place in my heart.

Great Campground

We really enjoyed all the activities Chatfield offers. Since we live close it will be a regular place for us. The views are amazing, all the lots are level but there's not a lot of shade. It was very quiet and everyone was friendly.

Clean, nice views

Campground is clean and well maintained. Large fire pits and nice metal picnic tables on every site. Clean bathrooms and showers. We camped in loop C and had nice views of the foothills and water. The swim beach and parts of the park are currently closed due to construction and improvements. We will definitely be back next year to check it out. Campground has little to no shade and can be quite windy at times.


I was the only tent in an RV park but i was still a great experience! freat neighbors and good vibes

campground within minites of denver with reservoir and nice views

Great views of mountains. Just minutes south of Denver. With decent facilities and a playground for kiddos.

We had a blast here

It gets a little breezy and there isn’t much shade but it’s an awesome time
