We used the Steamboat Campground as base camp during a three day long kids baseball tournament thinking we'd make a mini-vacation out of the trip. I chose the campground because of it's proximity to the fields we expected to play on and the amenities it offered (showering after a long day at the ballpark is an absolute necessity). The campground is attractive and our tent site was back away from the road, with a large tree for shade, and a grassy site that wasn't too dusty or dirty. The bathrooms, while not spotless were certainly clean enough and there was never a line for the showers or the washers that I saw. However, that's where the good stops. The campground charges a premium $27 for two people and an additional $3 per night for each extra person (families beware), you can not reserve online and when we called (thankfully) to confirm our reservations a week before they had lost them, and my husband spent a day talking to various people in an effort to fix the problem. More than once he was told someone would call him back, and there was no return call. Then there's the noise. I have never stayed at a campsite (and we camp frequently) where people routinely ignored quiet hours with no response from the camp host. Our first night we were treated to the loud,drunken, hyena like braying of a woman and her companions in another campsite, which continued on until after midnight (not so exciting when you know you have to be at the ballfield at 7am for warm ups), when that finally ended it was followed by the sounds of traffic and the trains rumbling through around 2am, we thought that it was just a freak night, but the second night of our stay we returned to the site about 10:30 pm to find some new comers chopping wood by the light of their car headlights and again loud music and drunken chatter from the original offenders, and of course the trains. The camp hosts were impossible to find, and there was no attempt to patrol the campground at the begining of quiet hours to remind folks that others may actually WANT to sleep.
The most concerning part of the stay for me though is the absolute lack of bear safety or awareness. Campers are not reminded that they are in bear country (though my husband did tell me he saw a sign up in a hidden corner by the communal gas grills that simply said "we are in bear country people." trash is quasi bagged and thrown in open barrels next to the entrance to the bathrooms which are right next to multiple tent campsites. There are no bear proof trash containers anywhere that I saw, and no reminders to keep food in cars at night, or any of the other standard common sense precautions. Seems like a recipe for disaster some year when the bears are hungry and looking for an easy meal. We will not stay there again.

We recently had our 2nd visit at the Steamboat Campground; the first time for a few years and during a quiet week. We came mid-week, just after Memorial Day, so occupancy was low. We found the staff to be very helpful, the grounds to be clean and well maintained (grass all around the RV sites; a little less so for the campgrounds but they were back in a stand of trees. The (common) fire-ring for the RV sites was clean; the swimming pool appeared to be well-maintained. I'd read some previous reviews of the location and was very concerned about the bathrooms; they were not spectacular, but they were clean and very usable. I certainly didn't pick up on any mold issues or cleanliness issues while there. The bridge to the camping area showed wear but was still very usable. I liked the Yampa flowing right through the campground and got to do a bit of fishing.

I recommend the back-in RV sites as you get some privacy; using the pull-through sites are great for big RVs, but you wind up sharing your outside area with the RV next door. Also recommend you request sites removed from US Hwy 40 as the campground is located next to it.

The WIFI works great and mobile phone service is fine. It's a great spot!

Room Tip: find a site away from the highway. Choose the back-in RV sites if possible.

I've stayed at the Steamboat Campground on and off through the years and i will never return. The staff is nearly impossible to track down, the office is only opened for 2 hours a day and even then it may be locked, the buzzer to call the folks is out of order and it took 2 days to get a return on a phone inquiry. It's obvious the staff has little regard for the property or the folks who are paying to stay there. Plenty of other beautiful places to camp in near vicinity of town, i highly recommend seeking them out

We tented it in Steamboat Campground. The front area of the campground is nicely presented for the RVs and cabins. There was a nice pool area. Then you drive over the bridge to the tent area. It was tent city. The road was awful. Flooding in the road was everywhere (it hadn't rained, there was a faucet leaking). There was only one bathroom for the entire tent area and many times it had a line. Each tent area was on a grassy area that was ample enough for even a large tent. The staff was very nice. The tent area just appeared to be in the back 40 and forgotten for any repairs. It is close to the highway and the sounds of traffic went on all night long.

My husband and I stayed at a camper cabin in August during the bike race and again in September 2011. The camper cabin was exactly what you might expect, beds with plastic-covered mattresses, an electrical plug and porch swing. It was fine for what we needed at the time. The camper cabins front on the Yampa River and have fire pits and picnic tables. We enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire in the evening. The shower/bathroom facilities are just okay. You get a VERY small shower but they are usually pretty clean. Not a bad place to stay if you want to save a little money. There is a typical outdoor swimming pool but I didn't use it so I can't comment on that. Pets are allowed. THe smoke detector was chriping when we arrived and wtihin minutes of notifying the office, a young man was there changing the battery.
