Steamboat Springs is a volcanic field of rhyolitic lava domes located 20 km SSE of Reno, Nevada. It is between 2.5 and 1.1 million years old and consists of lava domes and flows.
There are no recent eruptions, but it is hydrothermally very active, and contains about 50 hot springs, steam vents, and fumaroles.
An swarm of small earthquakes occurred 25 km NE of the Steamboat Springs in May 2008.
