Owner description: Stagecoach State Park sets the stage for great recreation in the lush Yampa Valley by Steamboat Springs. Vistas and views are backdrops to the 820-acre reservoir providing renown lake and river fishing. A year-round destination, the park also makes a great base to explore the variety of sports and attractions of the area. An array of activities await with boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking and camping. Winter offers trails for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and fat-tire biking for those seeking a less commercial experience. In summer, water sports enthusiasts enjoy the many ways to recreate at the reservoir. Off-season and weekday visits are wonderfully serene, providing great opportunities to take pleasure in the land, water and nature without the crowds. Cabin fever in the winter can be relieved by camping in one of the five electrical sites maintained just for winter camping. Stagecoach State Park is a great place to hold base camp when exploring the many outdoor opportunities around the park such as the Flattops Wilderness Area and Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area.

Around the August time frame, we walked for miles around the lake from the parking area and the dam. We had to frequently stop to view the wildlife, insects, flowers, and the amazing view of the lake itself and the hills overlooking the lake. Felt the need to take many pictures; that's how beautiful it was. Go on a warm sunny day, not a cloudy day on that hike.

Great location for ice fishing. They have a loaner gear program that hooked us up with everything we needed for free. We brought poles, but they have those too. Loaned us an ice auger, lures the fish hit there and even told us a good spot to try. The rainbow trout are beautiful!!!
$7 for park use for the day, but way worth that cost. This is a can't miss if you're anywhere close to Steamboat Springs and might even be worth the drive from Denver. They also had snow shoes, fat tire bikes and hiking equipment to loan out. We'll be back in the spring for that and probably again next winter to ice fish again. The ranger was the best. So helpful, friendly and had a passion for the park. Great job Colorado!!!

This park has an easy, well maintained trail that circumnavigates the reservoir. It is great for adults, young kids, and dogs. I went hiking here in September 30th and the fall colors were magnificent. Just about a 20 minute drive from Steamboat Springs, it is an easy getaway from town and an excellent place to be one with nature. The drive there was worth it too! Very picturesque.

A good sized man made reservoir. Fishing, boating, camping for those so inclined.

We like the shallow, far end where the pelicans and swans hang out.
