St. Vrain State Park is a family-friendly destination for visitors seeking a peaceful and simple outdoor break. Its easy to reach along I-25 between Denver and Ft. Collins at Highway 119 (exit 240).
Formerly named Barbour Ponds, this nature and people-friendly park offers 50 acres of land and 80 acres of water split among several ponds. Its a great place for anglers, campers, photographers, birders, walkers and anyone who loves nature.
Since 2006, Colorado State Parks added amenities like modern camping facilities, trail additions and fishing piers, with many more improvements on the way.
