Steamboat Lake

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 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 are available at the Dutch Hill ANS inspection booth:

  • 8am-4pm Daily

The ramp gates will be locked outside of inspection hours.
