There isn't a designated dog play area, and there are also no amenities provided for canine use. Owners should ensure their dogs' needs are met by bringing drinking water and poop bags with them to the park. It's the responsibility of all owners to display appropriate pet ownership by cleaning up after their pets.
Castlewood Canyon State Park is a private recreational space, and access to the grounds is permitted to those who pay the $7 fee which allows entrance for one vehicle for one day. There are no camping facilities at Castlewood Canyon State Park. The picturesque Cherry Creek traverses the property and provides the ideal location for a picnic on the grounds.
Also found on the premises are the ruins of a burst dam and its ensuing damage on the land itself. Castlewood Canyon State Park offers many great recreational opportunities for families to enjoy. Among the many outdoor activities are hiking, picnicking, and rock climbing. The land itself offers varied terrain and includes such features as trails and streams.
There are plentiful picnic areas which boast of wide open spaces and abundant shade. A sight to behold is the amphitheater of natural derivation as well as the on-site visitor's center which details the geological significance of this particular area.

Dogs are permitted on all trails but one: the new East Canyon Preservation Trail. As with all other areas of Castlewood Canyon State Park, dogs must be leashed on all trails.
