  • This is the best state park I’ve ever been to! Lots going on here. I’ve been out several times but this time took the tour which was about 2hrs on a Sun. Lots of wild birds including eagles/fledglings, blue heron, and more. Beautiful wildflowers too. The driver was friendly and had lots of info on the area. Usually there is a naturalist along but unfortunately there wasn’t one available this time. I’ll be going again. All the rangers and volunteers have always been super friendly!
  • What a beautiful park with easy access. The wildlife viewing and relaxing are amazing. When I travel to Denver, I typically stay near the airport and I have limited free time. Being relatively close makes this a must stop. I can't wait to go back and see more
