Nestled into the Rocky Mountains, Stagecoach State Park is known for its trophy fishing, abundant wildlife, watersports and spectacular scenery.
A 20-minute drive south of Steamboat Springs, Stagecoach State Park is a quiet lake with a marina that offers boat rentals for a day of fun in the sun. Record-sized fish have been pulled out of Stagecoach, and the calm waters are perfect for paddleboarding and wakeboarding before a picnic on the shore.
In the winter, guided snowshoe hikes and ice fishing keep the splendor of Stagecoach Reservoir alive year round.
