Within easy reach of those who are visiting Denver (or call the city home), one finds Cherry Creek State Park. This 4,000-acre park is the perfect place to find outdoor activities that allow one to escape the stresses of modern city living. Given that it is only 17 miles from downtown Denver and there are so many activities – as well as exceptional natural beauty it is also perfect for a day out with the family.
There is simply so much to do in the Park – it has something for everyone. For lovers of nature, it is simply the perfect destination. There are numerous opportunities to take in the majesty of this part of Colorado with a huge number of hiking and walking trails where the magnificent wildlife is on show. There are also ample camping sites for those who wish to overnight in the unspoiled Park areas. One can also choose to explore the magnificent birdlife in the area or even cast a line in the 880-acre waters of the Cherry Creek Reservoir in the Park. That piece of water is also perfect for those who either want to take a powerboat out for the day or to enjoy the serenity of sailing in magnificent surroundings with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop.
The Park is not only a summer destination for those who want to explore the camping opportunities that abound. Once the snow starts falling the camping experience becomes even more magical – and the Park will remain open. The camping opportunities represent excellent value for money – with a full services site costing only $30 per night in the high season.
Cherry Creek State Park is the perfect destination and antidote for the strains of modern life – it is nature at its most wonderful. Make sure you set aside some time to visit if you are in the area.
