Steamboat Rock State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This park covers 3,522 acres, including 9.5 miles of shoreline on Banks Lake, and a 26-mile-long, 27,000-acre reservoir of irrigation water. The campground is located on a large peninsula that juts into the lake, and prominent on this peninsula is the 800-foot Steamboat Rock—a flat-topped butte made of columnar basalt.
Fish in the lake include largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, rainbow trout, walleye, kokanee, black crappie, bullhead, and whitefish. There are 34 miles of hiking trails crisscrossing the park, and equestrian trails can be found in nearby Northrup Canyon State Park. Winter at Steamboat attracts snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and ice fishers."
