Getting Outdoors

Pull your boat behind your rental RV and have some fun on the water. Steamboat Lake State Park has a full-service marina and is open to boating from May to October, weather permitting. The 1,053-acre lake is situated in a valley and offers majestic mountain views. All watercraft entering the lake must be inspected for aquatic nuisance species. Visitors can have their watercraft inspected and stamped at the visitors' center, boat ramps, or by a park ranger anywhere within the park. Motorized and wind-powered motorcrafts must be registered with the visitors' center before entering the water. Pay attention when on the water; some areas have been restricted to wakeless boating only and are marked with buoys.

When cross-country skiing at Steamboat Lake State Park, you'll also want to do some motorhome camping so you can thaw out at the end of the day in a toasty RV.

The trails that wind through the park make excellent ski trails and are maintained year-round. The winter trails are usually ready for skiers by late December through early April.
