Chatfield's unique and diverse ecosystems, and expansive trail system make the park special for all types of recreation. The park's beautiful rolling foothills, expansive reservoir and abundant wildlife are all available just outside the Denver metro area. Yet, Chatfield is one of the most complete parks in Colorado and includes camping, a full-service livery, miles of hiking and biking trails, a popular lake, the Chatfield marina and one of the most popular hot-air balloon launch areas on the Front Range. The park is popular for great camping, boating and fishing as well as its relaxed environment and beautiful views of the nearby foothills. Great blue herons nest at Chatfield from March through September in the heronry on the south side of the park.
