Parking price is a little steep but worth it for the view! Very cool place to see especially if you're from out of state. Boats and jet skis can go right up to the beach and the reservoir is just so beautiful.

A local Denver area walking club hosts a 10 kilometer walking event which is mostly in the park. There are restrooms and water available along the way. Many picnic tables, shelters, and a good looking, well-maitained beach at the reservoir, for people to enjoy.

As said in the previous answer, no direct views of the lake from the RV sites. The lake is within walking distance and the park itself has many other amenities.
