Took Loveland Pass from the East, and came down through Keystone. Took the dam road to get to Frisco. Couple of nice places to stop and take in this great body of water and the mountains around it. There are bike trails all around it. One small side note, if you leave Frisco heading east on I70, there's a scenic... More

Our recent visit to the Rockies in Colorado was breathtaking! The beauty was unmatched between the mountain tops, green lush forests and beautiful blue waterways. We had a refreshing getaway with nature, fresh air and gorgeous surroundings! Walk or boat and then take in tasty food and drink in the area-

The ride around Dillon is beautiful and worth the effort for the views and trail. Started at the Summit High school side and biked straight up to the top. That's really the only part where trucks and cars are close to you. Definitely not for children. Frequent stops for breathing and water recommended on the way up! Once at the... More

This is a wonderful lake to take a stroll, jog, bike or just sit by and relax, you willLOVE the lake views. During the day visit the marina and at night make sure to put aside a Friday or Saturday evening for sitting under the stars and listening to their wonderful selection of entertainment in the summer.

An awesome morning can be spent kayaking (or canoeing or stand up paddle boarding) on Lake Dillon. Boats can be rented at the Frisco Marina. Mornings are best sice wind tends to come out late morning, Then you can sail!

Dillon Lake is a beautiful destination that takes on a new personality each season. In the summer there is an abundance of sail boats, pleasure craft and fishermen on the lake. In the winter you'll see cross country skiers making their way across from Dillon to Frisco; in addition to kite skiing when the wind picks up and the lake... More

We went into Dillon a couple times. It's just such a beautiful setting. We walked a little around the lake, and down to the marina. We spent a little time at the Tiki Bar too😃

We visited Summit County and rode a tandem bicycle on the paved bike path around the reservoir. The up and down trail gave us a good workout and nice views of the lake and mountains. Great for biking or hiking in summer or fall.

Dillon Reservoir has a pretty setting. It's a landmark at the base of the slope down from (or up to) the Eisenhower Tunnel on I70. However, in the universe of artificial lakes in Colorado and the Western USA, how does Dillon Reservoir rank? IMHO, there are some nicer - like Crater Lake. There are several that are perhaps less nice... More
