We love this campsite. We stayed in Reverend's Ridge camp ground. The bathrooms are flush, and for a small fee, you can shower if needed. Perfect space for kids. Hiking is beautiful.

I completely understand why this trail is considered difficult. I’m fit and if still took about 4.5 hours to complete the 8 mile loop. The views were breathtaking and afterwards we treated ourselves to dinner in Golden. Don’t hike this trail alone.

My husband and I camped in Loop J of Reverend's Ridge. The tent sites are nicely spread out so that, even when we had neighbors, we still felt we had some privacy. There are flush toilets between Loop I and Loop J with sinks and...More

If you are short on time in the Denver area, this is a great drive out, then return via Clear Creek. We only had a couple of hours, but it sure did seem like we got a taste of the Rockies.

My husband and I have camped here several times in the last few years. There are small cabins and a few yurts to rent if you don’t have the tent/camping gear. There are plenty of trails to venture out on right from the campgrounds or...More

If you want to give praise to a higher being, "GOD", then stop by this park and sit and listen for at least 5 minutes. Quietly, think how all of this beauty came about, and all in one place!

My friend & I enjoyed the trails & views at this off the beaten path state park. Pack layers. Even in the summer, the temps drop because this park elevation ranges between 7,700 and 10,400 ft. I reserved a camping spot months in advance. This...More

I hiked the Mountain Lion trail, which is a 6 mile loop around the eastern side of the park. It was a nice hike with no crowds that I enjoyed very much. They also have several ponds/lakes to fish in. None of the ponds are...More
