What: Steamboat Lake State Park - Bridge Island
When: Thursday, July 15,[masked]:00 PM
Steamboat Lake State Park

This meetup is in conjunction with the Colorado Tent Campers group. A few of us are going in to rent a pontoon boat for a few hours this weekend.
Steamboat Lake is a 1,055-acre reservoir at the base of Hahn's Peak in the heart of Routt National Forest, 26 miles north of Steamboat Springs. The Bridge Island Loop is surrounded by water and offers breathtaking views of Hahns Peak and the Park Range. Colorado Park Rangers voted the lake their favorite vacation destination. There is hiking, fishing, boating, a full service marina and swimming at the lake. Nearby guest ranches offers horseback riding.
There are vault toilets and water faucets. Leashed pets are permitted. You will want to bring firewood.
You will have to go online to http://www.reserveamerica.com/
in order to reserve your spot for this trip. Choose Steamboat Lake and the Bridge Island Loop. So far, I have spot 199, and Trevor has 197. There are a few spots available around us, but they seem to be going quickly.
Once you reserve your spot, come back and RSVP yes so we know who our fellow campers will be. You don't have to come out for Thursday, but this is about a 4+ hour drive from Denver and looks like an awesome trip.
