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.

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

The beautiful serene Lake Dillon amidst the large mountains surrounded by the amazing scenery of the Rockies in Summit County, Colorado is a feast to the eyes. Walking around the lake with family and friends with world class views and numerous sailingboats in the lake make it all the more spectacular. Very beautiful mountain lake indeed!!

I grew up in Colorado and have spent many Sundays by the shore of this reservoir. The last few years, I've lost touch with it and treated it as a barometer for climate change as we sped by on the highway. "Wow, look at the red pines -- the beetles are killing them all!" or "Now they've cut down all... More

We shared a gorgious afternoon with friends walking around Lake Dillon. We stopped in a restaurant by the lake for lunch and had a great meal and then went for a stroll along the lake. It could not have been a more spectacular day. After the walk around the lake we went to Keystone and listened to music at the... More
