Pearl Lake

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Pearls are a gift of nature and Pearl Lake State Park is just that.  Just a few miles off the road, it feels like an escape into the backcountry of Colorado.

Nestled in the mountains north of Steamboat Springs, this peaceful park sits in a serene lakeside setting.  Overlooking Farwell Mountain, visitors camp along the shoreline and on a ridge with amazing views.

Excellent fly and lure fishing for native cutthroat trout can be found in Pearl Lake's wakeless waters.  Paddleboarders clamor for a chance to launch on Pearl's expansive and st​ill waters. A trail takes visitors along the shoreline and leads them deep into the Routt National Forest.  Picnicking is picture perfect. This is a true escape from the day-to-day routine.
