Stagecoach State Park RV & Campground Guide

In the fall, you can enjoy the cooler temperatures and head to this park's biking trails. In every season, you can borrow or rent most of the equipment that you need, including snowshoes, augers, fishing rods, tackle, archery equipment, fat-tire bikes, and more from the park's headquarters. Stagecoach State Park is located approximately 17 miles south of Steamboat Springs, 159 miles northwest of Denver, and 160 miles east of Fort Coins, Colorado.
