If you are looking for a genuine Rocky Mountain experience this summer, consider camping alongside Steamboat Lake within the Steamboat Lake State Park. The park offers 188 campsites and many are very near the shoreline. There are sites that offer electric hook-ups (50amp) for those traveling with RVs and other more rustic sites for those looking to enjoy simplified accomodations.
The Dutch Hill campground is nearest to the Marina, swim beach, dump station and the camper services building. For those looking to capture the most scenic views of the lake, we recommend checking out the Bridge Island sites.
The Sunrise Vista campground includes an amphitheater and is connected to the Marina via a 1/4 mile foot trail. There are 6 loops and 113 sites included in the Sunrise Vista area of the park.
What you can expect from every site is a level parking area, picnic table, fire ring and a 14′ x 14′ tent pad. All tents and equipment need to be set up on these high use pads. The Camper Services building includes coin-operated laundry, coin-operated showers and dump station facilities. For those traveling with a boat, the launch is near the Camper Services building as well as the Marina. We sell firewood at the Marina so plan to stock up on pre-cut bundles when you arrive and leave the fallen wood in the park where it lies.
Camping rates range from $16/night for non-electric sites to $20/night for sites with electric. Camping permits are required in addition to a daily or annual vehicle pass. Advance campsite reservations can and should be made prior to your arrival to ensure you have a spot.
