Steamboat Lake Boating
Get Your Boat Out On The Water!
Boat trailers can be stored at the West end of the Marina in the trailer storage area and launched at the official park boat ramps located at the Sage Flats, Placer Cove and Dutch Hill areas.
The info below courtesy of the Colorado State Parks web site boating page:
" The 1,053-acre reservoir provides a variety of water-based activities. Some coves and inlets are restricted to wakeless boating and are indicated by buoys. A large portion of the lake is zoned for wake boating, water-skiers and jet-skiers to enjoy. Registrations for motor and wind-powered vessels are available at the Visitor Center.
Please observe all boating laws and regulations.
Also, please see the Boating page for information about mandatory Aquatic Nuisance Species Inspections for all trailer-launched vessels and any vessel with a motor. The lake will be open for boating from May 15 through October 31st of each year, depending on conditions. Please do NOT drink and boat! "
Sleep Under The Stars
There are 10 camper cabins at the Marina managed by Steamboat Lake Marina. These are in a beautiful setting close to the marina. Our Camper Cabins let you get as close to being "under the stars" as you can while still sleeping on a mattress and having a roof over your head.
Don't Miss This Place!
In our Marina store, we sell fishing tackle, bait, fishing licenses, camping gear, clothes and souvenirs. We offer firewood for sale.
You can also stock up on snacks, drinks, and last minute necessities.
Not to be missed is our famous fudge, hand-made by our own staff using recipes from the famous fudge-lady herself every Thursday all summer long!
Catch A Legend, Be A Legend
Fishing is a favorite pastime for the angler enthusiasts in your group. With a regulation bag limit of four fish daily and a possession limit of eight fish. Don’t forget your camera so the folks at home will believe the size of the Cutthroat you caught and they will just have to take your word for the rainbow trout that got away.
Be sure to pick up your fishing license, bait and tackle at The Marina.
Tent / RV Camping
Sleep Under The Stars
There are 198 campsites at Steamboat Lake State Park in a beautiful setting shaded by Aspen and Lodge pole Pine with many shoreline campsites.
Campsites are managed by the Colorado State Parks.
Mingle With Elk And Fox (at a safe distance)
Animals located in the park are mule deer, beaver, chipmunks, long tailed weasel, snowshoe hare and on rare occasions the black bear and mountain lion. With over 200 species of migratory birds and an amazing assortment of wildflowers, the drifting clouds and vast blue sky lends this panorama of splendor a dreamlike quality.
There are trails throughout the park where nature exploration offers an array of native wildlife. With pristine views of Sand Mountain, Meaden Peak, Hahn’s Peak, Farwell Mountain and the peaks forming the Continental Divide you might spot a red fox frolicking in the aspen forest.
Play In The Snow And Fish On Ice
During the winter months, the lake freezes over and the abundant snowfall transforms the surrounding area into a frozen playground. Ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing on 18k of dedicated non-motorized trails, big mountain backcountry skiing, and over 100 miles of groomed multi-purpose trails are all around the marina. The cross country ski trails begin a few steps from the cabins, and the multi-use trail system trailhead is located directly behind the marina building!
Find Historical Sites
This beautiful man made lake was created in 1967-68 with a 1,100 acre surface area reservoir at an elevation of 8,100 feet located in the Willow Creek Valley of the State Park Range.
Steamboat Lake Marina reflects the majestic Hahn’s Peak named after Joseph Hahn. Hahn’s Peak was a center for gold mining in the 1860’s and reminders of the past can still be recognized in the towns around the base of the mountain.
