secluded urban campground on a large lake. Cpaces spread out well, although there are few trees. Great for just relaxing or staying to sites in Denver. 2 miles from interstate 470

Incredible urban park. Recently updated infrastructure. Quiet setting near to the convenience of the Big City. Watch out for "extras" fees piled on from the Reservation Fee to the entry fee to the surcharge and on and on... Not an Overnight RV Park--better to choose as a destination if planning to visit the Denver area for more extended visit.
