About Stagecoach State Park:

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 is especially quiet offering trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to those seeking a less commercial experience.
In summer, water sports enthusiasts enjoy the many ways to enjoy the lake.

Off-season and weekday visits are wonderfully serene, providing great opportunities to enjoy land, water and nature without the crowds, and camping is open year round.

The area has a rich cultural history, beginning with the Ute and Shoshone Tribes using the area for hunting, gathering and making stone tools.  French trappers and traders began using the valley in the 1700’s and paved the way for mining and cattle and sheep ranching, which continues today.  The park was also a stop on a Stagecoach Line running from Toponas to Steamboat Springs that went out of service around 1907. 

Nature

Over 200 species of migratory and resident birds are known for this area including the raven, mountain bluebird, gray
