    I can find no such restrictions in either the Campground or Group Campsites brochures. As it's in Aurora, not Denver or Denver County, you should be good.

    As for fires, the Colorado State Governor banned ALL open fires state-wide as a result of the extremely dry conditions and the wildfires raging out of control near Ft. Collins and Lake George. That includes state and federal parks, national forests, and backyards.

    Please don't shoot the messenger!

    I suspect you may have gotten hold of an older brochure that reflected unlawful mandates on the part of liberal state park brochure writers...

    Its in the Chatfield Park regs and its dated June,2011 so its not that old

    Chatfield is in Littleton not Aurora. Cherry Creek State Park is in Suadi Aurora.

    Chatfield also only has a stage one ban so you have a fire in the fire pits and charcoal grills oddly enough
