  • We go to Steamboat Springs frequently, and this was our first time to this state park. It about 30 mins for the town very much worth the short drive. Beautiful scenery and lake. There is multiple...  more »
  • The park is nice but not worth the hour long drive from steamboat. We rented paddle boards but in the afternoon it gets so windy that frankly it wasn’t enjoyable. Beach is fine but nothing special.  more »
  • Great camping, close to hiking trails, short walk to the lake. The marina is fully stocked with a wide variety of things in case you forget something. Hahn's peak trail head is a 10 to 15 minute drive. 40 minute drive to Steamboat Springs. The electric sites have 15, 30, and 50 amp hookups. Clean restrooms and showers! $1 (in quarters) is good for a 4 minute shower. All of the girls on our trip said it was the longest 4 minutes, so should be plenty of time for most people. Dogs aren't allowed on the roped off section of the beach (even though some had them) but you can literally be on either side of the ropes with your dog. Not a problem. No shade at the beach except for a handful of trees. Large driveways for campers and vehicles. Highly recommend Steamboat Lake State Park!
  • This place is beautiful. We had a great experience. We camped and were really happy with how they set it up. You are far enough a way from each to few like you some privacy. The bathroom was kept clean. The beach area is also really nice - small but just the right size for us. I will definitely be going back.
