About Pearl Lake
Pearl Lake State Park is like a jewel nestled in the mountain forest of northern Colorado, a place of beauty and quiet. It lies at the base of Farwell Mountain and is neighbored by Hahns Peak. Located 26 miles north of Steamboat Springs, visitors will find outdoor diversions that are uncomplicated and low-tech — hiking, picnicking, camping, fishing, wakeless boating, and wildlife watching. The shoreline trail loops around the lake, linking hikers and bikers with thousands of acres in the Routt National Forest. Anglers will discover excellent fly and lure fishing for native cutthroat trout and grayling. — Back to all State Parks.
Campers can set up on the shoreline or a ridge just above the shore with superb views. Those who want full-service camping should look elsewhere, as the campground is primitive camping with no electrical hookups; however, flush restrooms and water are available. Two yurts are available for visitors seeking a different experience. Winter activities include the quiet beauty of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing. For full-service camping, motorboating, boat rentals, and a marina, check out neighboring Steamboat Lake State Park.
