Campground Description

There are 24 campsites with tables and fireplace grates, a water system (seasonal), vault toilets, dumpster and pull-through trailer spaces (under 22 feet). This campground is 4 miles west of the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness. The surrounding areas were heavily affected by a large wind event, the Routt Divide Blowdown, that occurred in 1997, and the fires of 2002. The overnight camping fee is $12.00.

    Great campground in the Steamboat area. Off the beaten path of most traffic. Several newer bathroom facilities and an easily accessible water pump. Fall asleep to the sound of the Elk River rushing by a hundred yards away. And only a short drive to the trailhead for the "Zirkel Circle" loop hike, one of the best hikes I've ever done. Please note that some camp sites in this campground have NO TREES due to the pine beetle epidemic. The Forest Service is doing all they can to keep the remaining trees healthy, but it is advisable to bring a shade tent or plan to be elsewhere during the mid-day heat. All campgrounds in the Steamboat area have this same problem, and Seehouse seemed to be in better shape than most of the others. Sites that have the most trees include 24, 23, 22, 19, 18, 16 and 15.

    Location is perfect for hiking and mountain biking. Two forks of the Elk River converge by the campground. There Pine Beetle has significantly reduced the number of trees in the campground
