    Best Car Camping Steamboat

    Any recommendations for camping near Steamboat.... Have a four year old and I don't want to end up next to a gun range or ATV rally. Just looking for something safe and near bike trails....Thanks brothers / sisters

    We lived there when I was a kid and our favorites were "The Meadows" (NFS campsite) on Rabbit Ears Pass and Steamboat Lake. The lake is cool because you can swim there. I don't really remember what made The Meadows our favorite of the 3-4 other Rabbit Ears sites though--I think they are all pretty nice.

    I'm not sure if those are pre-reserve or first come first served--you should check the status before heading to either of them. BTW, my only biking back then was on a BMX so I don't know how nearby to trails they are. I'm pretty sure there are trails just across Hwy 40 from The Meadows though.

    The thing I always remember about camping on rabbit ears is the amount of mosquitos...bring the repellant.
