Discover the most magical spots to pitch your tent or park your rig on your next Steamboat Lake adventure.
A relaxing oasis with plenty of opportunities for year-round outdoor fun.
Located at the base of Hahn’s Peak just north of the town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Steamboat Lake State Park offers year-round recreation and plenty of camp spots. Water skiing and jet skiing are popular activities on the lake and many of the coves and inlets are restricted to wakeless boating making it a great spot for paddle sports. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing are the big draws in winter. Steamboat Lake offers both electric and non-electric campsites during the main season and fourteen RV sites with hookups during the winter months.
Steamboat Lake State Park is open year-round. Summer is the most popular time to visit but the park can also be busy on weekends during the winter months. The drive from Steamboat Springs to Steamboat Lake is one of the best places to spot fall colors and colors typically peak between mid-September and early October. Winter campsites with electric hookups are available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Marina parking lot and the camping cabins are heated but require a 100-yard walk from the parking area in winter.
