State Parks website.

Nestled in a lush, green forest, this is a must see park!

High in the mountains west of the Continental Divide lies one of the most pristine lakes in the state. Native fish, such as cut-throat trout, fill the lake. Elk, deer, and bighorn sheep graze in meadows while large predators prowl the forest.

There is one campground with 40 sites for visitors. Please do not camp outside of this area. Large motor homes cannot be accommodated here, but smaller camping vehicles can enjoy sites with a table, grill and vault toilets. South of the campground is a boat ramp and a fishing trail, that leads around the lake.

Fishing is the favorite activity, but lure and size restrictions do apply. Boating is also popular here, as is hiking and mountain biking. In the winter months the park is open to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing.

To get there from Steamboat Springs, go west two miles on U.S. 40 to County Road 129, then turn right. Go north 23 miles to Pearl Lake Road, turn east and drive the final two miles to the park
