Stagecoach State Park

Description

Stagecoach sets the stage for great recreation in the lush Yampa Valley. Vistas and views are backdrops to the 780-acre reservoir providing renowned lake and river fishing. This area also boasts a rich cultural history, beginning with the Ute and Shoshone Tribes using the area for hunting, gathering and making stone tools. French trappers and traders began using the valley in the 1700’s and paved the way for mining and cattle and sheep ranching, which continues today. The park was a stop on a Stagecoach Line running from Toponas to Steamboat Springs until 1907. Colorado Parks and Wildlife gets everyone outdoors! Attracting more than 12 million visitors per year, Colorado's 43 State Parks are a vital cornerstone of Colorado's economy and quality of life. Colorado State Parks encompass 224,447 land and water acres, offering some of the best outdoor recreation destinations in the state. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is a leader in providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, protecting the state’s favorite landscapes, teaching generations about nature and partnering with communities.
