Camping

There’s no Steamboat summer experience quite like sleeping under the stars. Across the Yampa Valley, camping opportunities range from campgrounds with full amenities to a true wilderness experience in the Routt National Forest and designated Wilderness Areas. From car camping to packing a tent deep into the woods, explore the great outdoors and seek adventure with Steamboat’s camping options.

Always check closures of campgrounds as seasons can vary. For more information call the Steamboat Chamber at (970) 879-0880 or email info@steamboatchamber.com.

You may also visit the U.S. Forest Service office in Steamboat between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday for additional and updated information on campsites and trails.

Colorado State Parks Passes for 2014 are $7/day or $70/annually. You may purchase passes at the Steamboat Springs Visitor Center, or at the individual parks.
