Firestone - St. Vrain State Park

St. Vrain State Park in autumn

Located just west of I-25 at Highway 119, is one of Weld County’s true gems: St. Vrain State Park. This little slice of nature nestled in along the bustling Front Range of northern Colorado encompasses 604 acres of land and 152 acres of water split among several ponds.

Fishing is one of the most popular activities in the park as anglers of all ages have the chance to hook Bluegill, Black Crappie, Rainbow Trout, Channel Catfish, Bass and Walleye.

Non-motorized boating is also allowed on the ponds. Gas-powered motors are only permitted on Blue Heron Reservoir and must be operated at wakeless speeds.
