This beautiful multi-functional park offers resource education, diverse ecosystems, and an expansive trail system. It is a great retreat for camping, picnicking, hiking/biking, birding, boating, and fishing. This park is also one of the most popular hot-air balloon launch areas on the Front Range. Dogs of all sizes are allowed for no additional fee. Dogs must be on no more than a 6-foot leash and cleaned up after at all times. The exception is when dogs are used in hunting, field trials, or while being trained on lands open to such use. Dogs may be anywhere throughout the park, except they are not allowed on any swimming beach, water-ski beach, or in park buildings.
