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.

Boating

At 8,100' in a place where the Colorado sky seems just a bit bluer, our 1,053 surface acre lake rests in valley surrounded by mountains and views of the continental divide.

Our lake is open to boating from May 1st through November 1st each year, as icing conditions permit.

Please be aware that all vessels entering the lake must be inspected for Aquatic Nuisance Species.  Inspections may be done at the boat ramps, the Visitor Center, or by any Ranger in the field.
