Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Welcome to the Steamboat and Pearl Lake State Parks Department!

Located in northwestern Colorado at the base of Hahns Peak, Steamboat Lake State Park offers
year around recreational opportunities. Spring’s ice-off on the 1,055-acre lake creates memorable
experiences for anglers. Summer enthusiasts enjoy pristine campsites and hiking trails surrounded by
massive meadows of blooming wildflowers. Water sports are supported by a full-service marina. Fall
comes alive at the end of September when the aspen turn brilliant shades of red and gold. With over 300
inches of snowfall, winter offers recreationists the opportunity to immerse themselves in snowmobiling,
snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on groomed trails. Steamboat Springs is a short 26-mile drive from the park for visitors looking for that unique mountain town experience.

Pearl Lake State Park, located at the base of Farwell Mountain, offers peace and quiet in a lush forest
setting. Visitors camp along the lake and up a gentle hill. A stroll along the Pearl Lake trail provides a true
escape from the day-to-day routine. For those looking for a peaceful winter get-away, two yurts offer a backcountry experience while being only ½ mile off the beaten path.
