This is a well kept state park. There is definitely a lack of trees. There are small trees planted, but when we were here 4 years ago I believe these same trees were here and are still very small. There are walking trails in the park. Access to the Yampa River is very limited and overgrown. We were told the area between the park and the river was not the State's and they don't maintain it. Was disappointed in how unlevel the sites are. This is a clean park and nice visitor center, but just a little disappointed in the lack of shade. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Boondocking, State Park Campground. Central water hydrant, dump on campground. Plenty of room to move around our 36'. Rate includes both the camping and the day-use fee. Upon arrival, we were handed 2 different color permits; one for a 'trailer' with our departure date on it. One for a 'motorized vehicle' with only our arrival date on it. We were told to put the 'motorized permit' on the MH and the 'trailer permit' on the TOAD. We were advised not to move the TOAD or we would have to pay additional Day-Use fees (we stayed for 3 days). We simply reversed the permits and went about our business. Campground as a nice, short trail around it; watch out for the mosquitoes! We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Town of Craig offers many chainsaw statues in the City Park. Steamboat Springs offers several miles of bike/walking trail; don't miss the Fish Creek Falls short hike and views!

This is a great little find of a park. it is just off Highway 40 and I would have given it a 10 except you can hear a little bit, just a little bit, of road noise. The showers and restrooms are clean, though we did not use them There is a nice little laundry, two washers and two dryers. The reception people are friendly. There's a lovely walk on a gravel pathway near the river that goes a ways into the woods. The sites are well spaced and have small trees planted between them, though they are not tall yet. Lots of open space and many sites have these wind shelters around the picnic tables that look like they would be needed on many days, though when we were there, it was not windy. There were just a few mosquitoes around. We would most definitely stay again in this nice little park. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Our first Colorado SP, probably our last. The park is newer; level gravel pads, spotless showers ($1 for a few minutes) but not central to campsites, dispersed pit toilets. Electric at sites, dispersed water spigots [HINT: turn on spigot, pull down on larger tap --water pressure holds it down-- and water will then come through threaded tap. I was not familiar with THAT type of transitional spigot], some sites have shaded tables. $20 is value, but Colorado State Parks tack on an ADDITIONAL PER VEHICLE fee of $7 (so $27/night to camp, maybe even $7 for motorhome +$7 for dinghy=$14), so we'll probably not use their park system again. Most States (Western at least) have no vehicle fee added to a camp fee. We prefer SP, BLM, FS, COE, etc., to the 'pack' RV parks, so my ratings reflect the amenities we value: space, privacy, serenity, views, $value, vs playgrounds, golf, pool-spa, etc. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Only stayed here one night on way to Breckenridge, but really enjoyed the stay. We had a pull thru site with electric. Had communal water location so fill your tank before setting up; had dump station. Park was relaxing, comfortable and quiet; staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were working on a sprinkler system because everything was so dry. Site was long enough so we could leave tow vehicle attached. Plenty of room to open slides. We were in a 40 ft coach. Would stay here again short term. Beautiful sunset was a bonus. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

There are about 45 sites within this state park. It is located right next to I-40. We can not judge how noisy the road would be because all of our windows were closed due to the weather. The park officially opened a couple of days ago and there were only 3 other rigs in the park. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel. Each site had 50/30/20 amp service. Water was available at the dump station or at hydrants located throughout the park. These hydrants were threaded so you can easily hook up your water hose to fill your tanks. A vault toilet was also located within each of the two loops. All of the sites were over 40 feet in length,and had a picnic table (some with wind shelters) and a fire pit. Near the visitor center there were flush toilets, showers, and 2 washers and 2 dryers. The showers cost $1.00 for 4 minutes ($0.25 for each additional minute). The washers cost $0.75 and the dryers cost $1.00 (don’t know how many minutes). Internet access via a Verizon air card was slow. Verizon cell phone worked well. Camping cost $20 with a $7 day use pass per day. We would come back here again if we were in the area. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a peaceful park located on the Yampa River surrounded by popular trees. The sites are level and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The fishing in the area is great and the pond in front has Northern Pike that have been relocated from the river- it's quite a treat to catch a Pike on a fly line! This park is located between Craig and Steamboat Springs. There are beautiful, green hills at this State Park and a nice walking path around the perimeter of the property. Clean laundry and bathrooms, as well as educational information at the main desk. A nice place to stay and relax. We stayed here with two dogs for seven nights and were very pleased with our experience overall. Don't miss the Wild Goose Coffee Shop in town!

Even without full hook up this park rates a ten for us. Friendly staff, fun and interesting ranger lead talks for adults and children. No shade, small trees, river for fishing and just admiring, bird and beaver watching. Quiet level gravel sites. Big rig friendly, clean laundry, shower house. Large easy to get to dump station. Easy drive to Steamboat Springs which has a lot of activities. Sprint and Verizon both worked here. We would stay here again, and probably will next year.

A one-night stop for us and it worked fine. Clean, level sites, and a spotless new bathroom/shower complex in the main building. In fact I've never seen such clean showers at a campground. Lack of shade, but it appears to be a "young" park? Maybe the trees will grow. Highway is nearby, so I would avoid sites closer to the road. Not much to do right at the park; just a playground for the kids and a walking trail. We would stay again for a quick stop.

We stayed here one night in August in site #25 close to the Yampa River. You cannot see the river from the campground but it is only a short walk away. It looks as if you could fish and kayak on the Yampa River. The campground has very small trees so there is no shade but some of the campsites (but not all) have shelters over the picnic tables. The grounds are well-maintained and the picnic area and river trail are beautiful, located in tall Cottonwood trees. There is a big shower house. The park is dog-friendly. There is a well-equipped kid's play area. The tent sites seemed to be shaded and well-used. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

If there had been water and sewer hookups, I would rate this CG a 10. Great reception in office. Back-ins and large pull-throughs to choose from and all very level gravel. Lots of space between sites. Great hiking trails along the Yampa River. Clean laundry and restrooms. Showers cost a quarter but worth it. Trees are not large enough to make great shade yet, but will be wonderful someday. We stayed here to tour Steamboat Springs area and did not mind the 25 mile drive as some people would. Conveniently located right on US 40 but the noise was not bothersome at all. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

In general, a fine park for an overnight stay although a bit high for what you get ($20 for site, $7 for daily park fee). Electric is the only utility available at the site. There is a dump site and water available. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon signal was very good. No cable TV but our satellite signal was strong. The sites are long, wide and level (gravel). The park was pretty empty so we picked our own spot. There are pull-through and back-in sites. Some road noise from highway 40. No need to fear for safety, the park rangers seem to make their rounds every half hour. Appears to be a well-used park by locals for weekend outings. We would stay here again if passing through. Compared to the prices of the RV parks in Steamboat Springs, this is a steal. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice state park! There was a friendly welcome at check in. There are long, level, gravel, pull-throughs with electric. A nice metal table shaded by a cabana type shelter is provided. Trees were scattered at each site, about 15-20 ft. tall. It was at least 100 ft. to nearest sites. Dept. of Wildlife manager put on a good 1 hour talk about bears and did a good job of it. We will return. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Great state park. Rate reflects Aspen Leaf Pass rate for Colorado seniors over 65. Nice gravel sites that are level and clean. Water and sewer available at the dump station. 50 amp to 20 amp electric on site. Close to Steamboat Springs. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean park with level sites. They have a dump station right there on the property. Nice trail around the grounds for exploring and the river is right there for fishing or tubing. Sites have fire rings and some have shaded picnic tables. We will stay here again. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
