​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​St. Vrain State Park is a family-friendly destination for visitors seeking a peaceful and simple outdoor break. It’s an easy drive from Denver or Fort Collins, located on Highway 119 just off I-25 (Exit 240).

Formerly named Barbour Ponds, this nature and people-friendly park offers 689 acres of land and 228 acres of water (not including wetlands and rivers), split among several ponds.​ It’s a great place for anglers, campers, photographers, birders, walkers and anyone who loves nature.

Since 2006, Colorado State Parks added amenities like modern camping facilities, trail additions and fishing piers, with many more improvements on the way.
