Sand Mountain in Steamboat Lake State Park, by Brett Lounsbury

​​One of the true jewels of Colorado, Steamboat Lake State Park has something special for everyone. Whatever your preference, well-deserved relaxation and recreation awaits you. 

Hahn's Peak frames the breathtaking scenery of this premier park offering family fishing, camping, picnicking, trail and boating recreational opportunities. A full-service Marina and swim beach provide amenities for active water play.

Winter comes alive with snowmobiling, ice fishing, and peaceful cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing in a valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Ten camper cabins down by the Marina welcome adventurers for a cozy night.


Camping at Steamboat Lake offers a spectacular opportunity to immerse  yourself in clean, crisp air and true Rocky Mountain living.

Winter camping with electric outlets is available on a first-come-first-serve basis in our Marina parking lot at a rate of $20 / night.

Reservations for 2014 may be made between 3 days and 6 months in advance with a first reserveable date of Friday, May 23rd, and a last reserveable date of Monday, September 8th.  During this peak season, non-electric sites are $18 a night and electric are $22 a night.  For detailed campsite information please click here.

Winter Recreation

Our park truly thrives in the deep winters of north Routt County. Averaging over both 300 days of sunshine and inches of snow each year, it's a breathtaking place to be!

Whatever you like to do in and around snow or ice, we have it here. There's access to over 140 miles of groomed snowmobile rail, 15k of groomed non-motorized trail, a marked snowshoeing route, and the ice fishing is unsurpassed! Check out the winter recreation brochure.

Parking is available both at the Visitor Center and the Marina. Park passes are required for both areas. Also, we want to continue being a pet friendly place, so please keep any dogs on a leash.

While you're enjoying your time here, please use sunscreen and drink water to avoid dehydration​.

If you have any questions or if there's anything our staff can do for you, please let us know!
