Quick update. We just got back from Pearl Lake. What a fantastic place. We started in site 26, and moved to 28 because we couldn't get a 7 night reservation. Fished the Yampa, King Solomon Creek, Hawn's Peak Lake and Pearl. Hiked various trails around Pearl and Hawn's Peak. Had perfect weather (80s during the day, 30s at night) great campfire weather.
The last pic is site 28. I should have taken it in the morning, instead of the evening. Just forgot.
This is a very quiet CG, no hookups at all. We were pretty careful about conserving water, and had a generator. Since we moved on day 5, we added a few gallons of water. Nice flush toilet near by. The hosts were very friendly and had some great, dry firewood.
We will probably go back to Pearl.
It was sad to see all the stumps from the pines that had to be taken out, but lots of new growth. The upper loop is much further from the lake, and has even fewer trees. I don't know if I'd take a spot in the upper loop.
Thanks again everyone for the advice.
As a side note, we didn't spend much time in Steamboat. We hadn't been there for 20+ years. Wow, has it grown. Ran into some very frustrated drivers with all the traffic. Some were downright rude. Lots of honking and finger pointing. Just unhappy people I guess. Considering where they live??
