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 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

We did the Tombstone trail which was very easy and scenic. I wanted to do the Gilpin trail because I understand its the most scenic, next time.

We camped in the bay loop (a very new part of the campground) with our daughter, her husband and three very young children for a week. This a a very kid friendly campground with a nice playground, beaches, places to ride bikes, and hike. We were surprised that the mosquito population was gone by mid September but the flies were...

We had two families vacationing in Steamboat and decided to rent a pontoon one day. Scheduled four hours and ended up extending it. It was a little pricey but worth it. The boat was in really nice, in good shape and clean and had a grill. The staff was very friendly, helped us load all our stuff, and give us... More

A few miles out of Steamboat Springs. A very relaxing pontoon boat on Steamboat lake. Very accommodating people and a relaxing afternoon.

Were vacationing in Steamboat and on the advice of a friend decided to rent a pontoon boat for a couple of hours. They even had one with a gas grill. A two hour rental was a couple of hundred dollars but it was very relaxing just cruising around the lake. And a couple of hours is a perfect amount of... More
