Bingham Lake Park

×

Located in The Pinery subdivision, Bingham Lake is a quiet oasis enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers, dog enthusiasts and fisherman. The shelter located at the west trailhead is a perfect location for a shaded picnic as you take in the beauty of the front range and observe the waterfowl and other wildlife that frequent the lake.

Location:

7740 Lakeshore Dr.
Parker, CO 80134

Hours:

Open sunrise to sunset

Amenities:

Lake Fishing Dock

Please be respectful to your fellow fisherman and:

  • Limit one fishing pole per person while fishing on the dock
  • Always be considerate to disabled individuals trying to use the dock and give them access to the designated areas clearly marked with decals
  • Catch and release is encouraged
  • Report misuse of this facility to Douglas County Parks, Trails and Building Grounds at 720-733-6990

Bingham Lake draws visitors who want to test their skills against some of the various warm water game species that inhabit the lake, such as large-mouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill yellow perch, channel catfish and wipers (hybrid white/stripe bass). An annual stocking program began in 2005 to ensure adequate numbers of fish are available to catch. In addition, a habitat enhancement project, periodic assessments and requests for anglers to “catch and release” has helped maintain a quality fishery.

A Colorado fishing license is not required since the lake is managed under a private license.  Changes in regulations by The Pinery Water and Wastewater District prohibit any boating or wading due to concerns of introducing Zebra or Quagga Mussels into the lake. Both are invasive species that would have a profound impact on the ecosystem and mechanical pumping operations at the lake.
