Next Wednesday, April 13 from 6-8pm at the Stagecoach Firehouse there is a public open house to provide information about the newly drafted Stagecoach Management Plan of 2011-2021. The meeting hopes to go over the planning framework for setting management priorities and specific resources for the park. Feel free to stop by to learn more about our beautiful Stagecoach, and give your comments to the park staff. Read more about the Management Plan.
For those of you that don’t know, Stagecoach is a beautiful State Park just South of Steamboat Springs between the town and Oak Creek. It is so popular, that “Stagecoach” has become a common area of reference for locals and also a popular area to live. With a stunning lake perfect for wake boarding, fishing, water skiing, and viewing local wildlife such as cranes, pelicans, river otters, and bald eagles, Stagecoach is a place that is highly frequented in the summer by Steamboat locals and outdoorsy visitors. A bonus to the park is that it usually is about ten degrees warmer than Steamboat Lake. Steamboat Lake, a favorite up North of Steamboat because of it’s looming mountain views, is another great spot to enjoy boating, but it does tend to be slightly chillier than Stagecoach and a longer drive.
The Stagecoach area is quickly growing, and is a fantastic area to snatch up some well priced land if you are looking. Many locals choose Stagecoach as a place to live both because of the proximity to the lake and also because land and homes are much cheaper than those listed directly in town. The drive really is not too bad; it takes roughly fifteen minutes to get to most of the housing subdivisions in Stagecoach, and many of the lots have beautiful lake views.
