This update covers our visit to Pearl Lake State Park. We have really been impressed with all the state parks in Colorado. We purchased our pass last year and it’s still good for a couple more months. We are so glad we bought it, we have visited so many parks since, it has already paid for itself.
We really loved this park, it has signs posted all over telling us to be careful because there are a lot of moose in the area. We didn’t see any this visit, but it certainly is surrounded with all the bushes and vegetation and water that moose love. The campsites are located right on the lake, they have electric sites but no sewer hookups. It is a beautiful back to nature park, we enjoyed our visit much.
The park is surrounded by wilderness in Northwest Colorado, Pearl Lake State Park is a true escape from hustle and bustle. It’s located about 30 minutes north of Steamboat Springs and across County Road 129 from Steamboat Lake State Park. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from out Colorado adventures.
