Known for its rock climbing and high altitude views, the Eldorado Canyon State Park is perfect for athletic guests looking to hike. The Eldorado Canyon State Park offers some of the best rock climbing in the state. It's sandstone cliffs feature over 500 different climbing routes, many of which are graded for experienced climbers only.
Introductory climbing classes are offered here, more information on which can be found on the Eldorado Canyon State Park's website. Sorry pet owners, but you'll have to steer clear of the climbing walls when accompanied by a canine. South Boulder Creek offers fantastic fishing opportunities through the season. Popular species found here are catfish and perch.
All fishing done on this body of water requires a valid state fishing license, so make sure yours is up to date before hitting the water here. Common areas for this activity include both the two-acre beach as well as the concrete fishing pier located adjacent to the marina. If you've taken a dog a log with you for this part of the park experience, they can stay as long as you've got them on a leash.
The park's creek also offers boating, with motorized trolling motors being the largest vessels allowed here. If you've got a kayak, canoe, or paddle boat you're welcome to drop them in the water. All guests boating are required to have a Colorado State boat registration displayed on your credit before they hit the waves. Guests with dogs are welcome to bring them along for a water adventure, provided they keep their animals safe.
Camping is offered via eleven traditional sites that are located on the northern edge of South Boulder Creek. These can be rented up to six months in advance, so make sure to book yours early if you want to ensure you get a spot. Dogs are welcome on the campgrounds as long as they're not disruptive to other guests of the Eldorado Canyon State Park.
