We enjoy boating but have had difficulty finding a decent spot since we moved to Denver. We have lived in Chicago and Minneapolis and are likely spoiled by the lakes and rivers there. But Lake Dillon provides a good spot for boating with outstanding views. The crowds are acceptable, even on weekends. We tow our boat from Denver and have... More

We took the Tenderfoot Mountain Trail. We started about 1 mile from the trailhead and followed the bike path. The folks riding bikes fly down the path so you have to be very carful if you have little ones with you. The bikers are friendly enough and make the calls, but it is still something you have to pay attention... More

Because the weather was threatening we did not attempt to climb Quandary Peak, and the potholes kept us from McCullough Gulch, so we went to Dillon, parked at the Marina, and began hiking around the lake. We went as far as the dam, then turned back and went back to the Marina in the rain. The view were wonderful, and... More

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. Would recommend calling ahead to reserve during the busy season. We didn't but if we had a larger group then we would have been in trouble. They have canoes as well. We did not... More

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. I made sure I was there. But this time he waited and waited and waited, even for a large party that had trouble scraping together the... More

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.
