Park Conditions Alert:
Chatfield State Park continues to experience flood related issues that are affecting recreation and facilities at the Park. The park, including the campground, remains open at this time. We are currently 6ft above our normal full pool level. Due to forecasted weather and spring run-off conditions can change and additional areas affected.
Facilities affected and closed at this time are:
- Swim Beach
- Jamison Picnic Area
- Catfish Picnic Area
- King Fisher
- Eagle Cove
- South Boat Ramp
- Plum Creek Picnic area (including Roxborough Cove)
Restroom facilities and parking lots in these areas are closed. Parking space and picnic locations are limited at this time due to the high water. Parking is not allowed along the main park road. All vehicles must be parked in a designated parking area and those are limited at this time.
Boaters are required to use the North Boat ramp. Boaters may experience delays in loading and unloading due to limited dock space. Boaters will need to use extra caution on the water as there is increased debris and buoy markers may have moved during the flood.
Float your boat in the lake, bicycle or hike on a trail that provides scenic views of the neighboring foothills and Platte River valley, camp, ride a horse and even fly a model airplane - all at Chatfield State Park, nestled next to the foothills southwest of Denver.
Boaters of all types – from water skiers to fishing enthusiasts to canoeists and sailors - enjoy Chatfield Reservoir’s waters. Boat rentals, a floating restaurant and a marina are also available at Chatfield. Campers have their choice of 197 campsites all with electrical hookups and many with full hookups (water, sewer and electric), in four campgrounds at Chatfield. All campsites are within walking distance to the lake and have picnic tables and grills. Facilities include flush toilets, hot showers, laundry, centrally located water, fire ring and a sanitary waste station. In addition to the 197 single-family campsites offered at Chatfield, there are ten reservable Group Camping sites available. Please call the Park Office at (303) 791-7275 for more information or to reserve a Group campsite.
