We went there when the lake was pretty full, which it almost never is. But our goal was to use the archery range, which is pretty good, not busy at all when we went. The park is generally pretty level, and there are miles of...More

I loved fly fishing with my grown son. For a day trip. Rented a cabin in September and friends camped. Even in September too hot without shade so no napping. Without trees no privacy. Love the park as a whole.

Bear Creek has much nicer swim beach than Chatfield. Good snack bar too with pizza and ice cream. If you need swim inflatables they have those also.

Ileana, depends on day of week and what is generally happening that weekend. That said you are usually good to get a spot if you arrive about two hours before lunch time.

I'm not sure there is a guaranteed time that will work. However, weekdays appear to be usually safer, and on the week-ends, you would really need to be there as soon as the park opens.

There are both paved and unpaved however if you are looking for primarily unpaved there are areas with even more options.
