​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Stagecoach State Park sets the stage for great recreation in the lush Yampa Valley by Steamboat Springs. Vistas and views are backdrops to the 820-acre reservoir providing renown lake and river fishing.

A year-round destination, the park also makes a great base to explore the variety of sports and attractions of the area. An array of activities await with boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking and camping.

Winter is especially quiet, offering trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to those seeking a less commercial experience.  In summer, water sports enthusiasts enjoy the many ways to recreate at the reservoir.

Off-season and weekday visits are wonderfully serene, providing great opportunities to take pleasure in the land, water and nature without the crowds.  Cabin fever in the winter can be relieved by camping in one of the four electrical sites maintained just for winter camping.

Stagecoach State Park is a great place to hold base camp when exploring the many outdoor opportunities around the park such as the Flattops Wilderness Area and Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area.

Colorful Stagecoach History

The area has a rich cultural history, beginning with the Ute and Shoshone Tribes using the area for hunting, gathering and making stone tools. French trappers and traders began using the valley in the 1700’s and paved the way for mining and cattle and sheep ranching, which continues today. The park was also a stop on a Stagecoach Line running from Toponas to Steamboat Springs. The Stagecoach Line went out of service around 1907.
