Nestled in the mountains north of Steamboat Springs, in
beautiful country that is Northern Colorado's best kept secret, Steamboat Lake
Outpost has everything you need for the perfect mountain getaway. With a
variety of lodging facilities and RV spots, a full-service restaurant and bar,
a general store and adventure outfitter featuring horses, ATVs, and snowmobiles,
we are the perfect base camp for friends and families looking to get away and
explore the Rockies.
Whether you’re looking to cast on the Gold Medal Waters of neighboring Steamboat Lake, hike to the top of Hahn’s Peak, which towers behind the lodge and gives sweeping views of the Yampa Valley, or ride some of the best snowmobile terrain in the west, we’ve got you covered. And when the sun sets on a day of adventure, we can’t wait to meet you in restaurant for a brew and a bite, to swap stories of good days with good people in the great outdoors.

**We have limited availability during our "mud season," April 2 - May 16. Online booking is closed for that time, but please call to inquire about availability.**
