My sister sails here in the summer, but right now this lake is frozen and covered with snow. As usual there is a Plethora of people walking their dogs. We enjoyed sitting on the bench, watching 4 different people snowboard with kites on top of the frozen snow covered lake. A new awesome playground was used by kids even with... More

What a beautiful place to visit whether it's summer or winter. I have traveled to Colordao each winter from south Florida to ski and we always make it a point to spend time at Dillon Reservoir. There is ice fishing and we also saw skiing/kite boarders which was beautiful. Driving around the lake I found many great places to capture... More

A nice paved bike trail goes all the way around the lake. Picked it up right in front of the Best Western. Very scenic.

we drove over the "dam road" at the beginning of a snow storm, and the bridge was scary, covered in snow and ice. This road is closed sometimes during blizzards, and we can see why. It's a great view to drive to Frisco from Dillon, using this passage, but be careful if snow is falling. The bridge will freeze and... More

Great place to walk and enjoy the lake and mountain views. There are benches for a nice pause to sit and enjoy the lake and surrounding mountains.

They have 2 great parks, nice trails, and - I think - boat rentals. The view was terrific. I understand that a local motel (Best Western) includes bicycle loans, so that would have made the afternoon even more fun.

Beautiful view surrounded by mountains. Unexpected lake surrounded by mountains. Breathtaking with the sun on the still water of the lake and a dozen sailboats. Drop by Jersey Boys and get a subway and take to the lake where you can find a bench right on the water or under the pavilion. Walk over and watch the kids play on... More

Canoeing on Lake Dillon was a new adventure for us. Enjoyed the beautiful Fall colors. Rental was affordable and canoe and gear was in tip top shape even at the end of the season.
