I drove up here from Steamboat and the drive was very nice. The visitor center is small but nice. If the weather had been better I would have cross country skied around the lake.

In winter and summer Steamboat Lake has days and days of fun to offer. Lakeside fun is pretty obvious in the summer, but don't count out the winter fun opportunities at Steamboat Lake. Ice fishing for trout is a great way to relax after several hard days on the ski slopes. And then there is the cross-country skiing and snow... More

We had a wonderful drive around the lake and country side. The lake was frozen over but really enjoyed the country. The mountain views were amazing and makes you want to live there.

We've visited a few times. Fishing is nothing special and it's pretty cold for water sports. Not as pretty as other places in Colorado

Hired snowshoes for the first time & went here with my daughter-in-law. Really helpful guy at the visitor centre who pointed us in the right direction. The snowshoe paths were well laid out (there were plenty of cross-country ones too) and we spent a wonderful couple of hours enjoying the magnificence of the scenery, overlooked by Mount Hahns. Breathtaking. Went... More

We really enjoy driving to the lake. Our dogs enjoy it during the summer months. It's fun to camp or even go for a day.

This was great place. No matter where you looked there was a beautiful scene. The lake is huge. The day we were there it was very windy so just drove around It

Camped at Steamboat Lake State Park for 10 days in July. We were in the Dutch Hill campground. Beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The shower/laundry building was nearby and well-equipped. The pit toilet within the campground circle was absolutely atrocious, needed to be emptied badly. We rarely saw the camp host. Park Rangers did drive through occasionally.

We decided to drive from Steamboat Springs and visit the Steamboat Lake State Park. We intended to rent a kayak and kayak around the lake. When we arrived at the boat house it was closed. We finally called the Park headquarters to see when it would be open. We were informed that the boathouse was closed for the season, although... More

This was probably my favorite outdoor site that we visited while in Colorado. We must have picked the best time ever to visit because the leaves were changing and there were not many people around at all. We were able to pull right up to a beautiful little picnic area and enjoy the scenery all by ourselves for at least... More
