Enjoy Cherry Creek Park
The campground has 133 modern campsites some of which are seasonal. Amenities include an amphitheater, marina, boat ramps, model airplane field, a shooting range, horse rental, picnic facilities, and dog off-leash area. Because of its proximity to Denver, Cherry Creek can be very crowded, so make plans. The diversity of wildlife makes the park a wonderful site for nature viewing. Bird watching is popular which includes shorebirds, songbirds, and raptors, bald and golden eagles, American white pelicans, white-faced ibis, and a mix of prairie and woodland songbirds. — Back to All State Parks.
