St. Vrain State Park


Cattails frame the ponds, egrets stand tall, birds flock to the tall trees and toads sing for campers, picnickers and anglers. Formerly named Barbour Ponds, this nature and people-friendly park offers 50 acres of land and 80 acres of water split among several ponds. The ponds are a great place to spot snapping turtles, painted turtles and soft-shelled turtles. Visitors enjoy easy access to nature here, with great new facilities open and more under development. Colorado Parks and Wildlife gets everyone outdoors! Attracting more than 12 million visitors per year, Colorado's 43 State Parks are a vital cornerstone of Colorado's economy and quality of life. Colorado State Parks encompass 224,447 land and water acres, offering some of the best outdoor recreation destinations in the state. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is a leader in providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, protecting the state’s favorite landscapes, teaching generations about nature and partnering with communities.
