  • Great camping with clean sites. Amazing fishing! Swimming beach was fun and well maintained. Water was perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding. Will come back again
  • Gorgeous lake with well kept facilities. $7 bucks will get you a day pass. There's a sizable beach area, picnic area, a marina, etc. Plenty of things to do such as fishing, boating & camping. The marina offers all sorts of rental options. From a basic canoe to a few hours on a power boat and nothing is crazy expensive. A variety activities and beautiful surroundings make the lake a great way to spend the day.
  • Steamboat Lake and the surrounding area is a great field trip if you are spending time in Steamboat. It is a good 30 minute drive from Steamboat Springs and a beautiful one at that! There are hikes in the area and a a place to rent small boats in the summer to get out on the lake. Also a small shop by the docks if you need to pick up a few supplies.
  • Great fishing. Fun place to visit all the seasons of the year!
  • Beautiful scenery, although prettier in the summer. I enjoyed our first day hike there very much!
