About Pearl Lake State Park:

Nestled in the mountains north of Steamboat Springs, this peaceful park sits in a quiet and thick forest setting. Surrounded by towering pines, visitors camp along the lake and up a gentle hill, deep in the cozy woods.

There’s excellent fly and lure fishing for native cutthroat trout as they flash their red throats when pulled from the water. This is a true escape from the day-to-day routine.   A trail takes visitors along the shoreline and leads them deep into the forest.  Picnicking is picture perfect amongst the big trees that frame the lake. 

The campgrounds at Steamboat Lake and Pearl Lake have been CLOSED as of 10/16/2008 due to falling tree danger as well as logging projects.  The parking lot at the marina at Steamboat Lake will be available for electric plug in for camping.

This is a major project where we will be removing trees killed by the Mountain Pine Beetle over the last several years.  We are not expecting to be able to open the Pearl Lake campground until Spring of 2010, however our yurt(s) will be available in the interum.  See our conditions page for updates.

With over 300 inches of snow each year, winter re

The sheep wintered near Rawlins, Wyoming. The Cow Creek and Pioneer sheep summered near Hahn's Peak, Colorado in the place that is now Pearl Lake. John Kelly Hartt died in the early 1950s, eventually resulting in the sale of the land by his wife, Pearl, to the U.S. Forest Service. That sale was thought to be the event that shifted this region from primarily agricultural to primarily recreational. Recreational opportunities in Pearl State Park include camping, boating, fishing and picnicking. There are 36 campsites amongst the forest of fir, spruce and pine.
