This is a great place for an easy weekend getaway. It's not exactly secluded and there are plenty of families with kids but it's a great home base if you want to explore Steamboat and Routt National Forest. Tip: get your firewood at the Hahn...More

Beutiful views. Few picnic tables. The beach area doesnt have much sand. They have small cabins for rent. Good for family trips. Very clean. Try to avoid weekends because it gets too crowded.

Go to Pearl Lake, it is less crowded, no boats too. It's only a few miles from Steamboat lake. Get there in the morning too, around 10am. I think it was Adventure Sports that rented kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. Great morning adventure!

Yes, they are. Paddleboards are considered a "vessel" so you must at least carry a life jacket for everyone on board and have a whistle. Kids under 13 must wear their life jacket.
