So, before our Radium dry camping we had been in Steamboat Springs for a couple days. Our daughter was at college orientation for Colorado Mountain College and so we took my parents 5th wheel to be our traveling hotel. We stayed 6 miles west of town at this RV park: http://www.eaglesoaringrvpark.com
It was quiet and mostly all RVers. No tent sites. There are bathrooms, washer and dryers and coin operated showers. We had full hook ups and free wifi. There is a group fire ring. It worked and was ideal if you are spending time in Steamboat. Cheaper than a hotel! At the time of this post it was $45.
Last summer we went to Steamboat Springs for a wedding. The wedding was held at Steamboat Lake Outfitters and we did a little half day excursion to Pearl Lake. The resort was a great little place! There are multiple cabins, a store, a restaurant and many opportunities for recreation. The cabins are different sizes and the prices are very reasonable. Horses are on site. You’ll note that they are also a hunting outfit when you go to the website link below.
This area is north of Steamboat Springs and seems to be pretty quiet. I haven’t been to Steamboat Lake, but perhaps this is a less populated choice. Pearl Lake is one of Colorado’s State Parks. We headed over to the lake for a half day of fishing and hanging out. Gorgeous lake. There is a campground at Pearl Lake as well–and based on others recommendations, I can say that it is a great find!
Getting there: From Steamboat Springs, go west two miles on US 40 to county road 129, then turn right. Go north 23 miles to Pearl Lake Road, turn east and drive two miles to the park.

We had a storm just before the wedding ceremony and then it cleared up to be beautiful! (I think this was a really great place to have a wedding!)
