Enjoyed taking family photos here. The views are awesome. We did also rent kayaks on the Frisco side marina and enjoyed kayaking a couple of hours.

Our family went to the lake for a family photo shoot for our reunion. Great place for pictures & a picnic. Not much shade though.

This is a great spot to take kids as they have playground with a lot to keep them busy. It's also near dining options and at times as life music in the band area.

Really infuriating!! Arrived at noon as taxi was offloading. I waited at the tip of the ramp for those passengers to disembark. Meanwhile, the EMPTY taxi took off. Did not return for an hour.

Was a nice ride and view of the mountains and city/lights below. We were on a short highway around part of it and went on to sight see on the other side.

This place is wonderful for the "Inland regatta" crowd or just for boating and hanging out. Frozen well into June sometimes, you might not want to be swimming for long periods of time, but the blue water set in this mountain valley is a transporting experience. Rentals available.

Wonderful large lake that touches Dillon and Frisco in Summit. County with well placed marinas in both towns. Summer water taxi service makes it great for transit between towns for a scenic ride and lunch ..including bikes. Fishing, all varieties of boats available for rent , and lakeside restaurants provide a high mountain water experience for locals and tourists .... More
