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.

Please do your part to visit parks responsibly:
- Purchase annual park passes and fishing licenses online at cpwshop.com before you come to the park to reduce long waits at park entry stations.
- Follow The 7 Principles of Leave No Trace including plan ahead and prepare, travel and camp on durable surfaces, dispose of waste properly, leave what you find, minimize campfire impacts, respect wildlife, and be considerate of others.
- Avoid creating crowds around trailheads.
- If we reach park capacity, we follow one car in one car out rules.
- Visit the park during non-peak hours (before 9am, after 4pm) or on weekdays.
- A park pass does not guarantee admission on busy days. Annual pass holders cannot drive around lines when we hit capacity.
- Be kind to others!
