This park features Chatfield Stables offering horseback trail rides,
hayrack rides, youth day camps and riding lessons. Horse trailer
parking, corrals, unloading ramps and a trailhead are located on the
park's west side. Equestrian trails are also available throughout the
park for those bringing their own horses.
Chatfield's unique opportunities for resource education, diverse
ecosystems, expansive trail system coupled with boating in a beautiful
setting make the park special for all recreational users.
When visitors see Chatfield's beautiful rolling foothills, expansive
reservoir and abundant wildlife, they can't believe the park is just
outside the Denver metro area. Yet, Chatfield is one of the most
complete parks in Colorado.
The park includes camping, a full-service
livery, miles of hiking and biking trails, a popular lake, the
Chatfield marina and one of the most popular hot-air balloon launch
areas on the Front Range. With nearly 1.5 million visitors annually,
Chatfield has a lot of admirers. The park is popular for its relaxed
environment and beautiful views of the nearby foothills. Great blue
herons nest at Chatfield from March through September in the heronry on
the south side of the park. Come out to this delightful retreat for
great camping, boating and fishing.
