“Friday Farmer's market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The many mountain communities have added weekly farmer's markets to their list of attractions, and farmer's market in Dillon is on Fridays.

We have been visiting this area for 40+ years, and always marvel at the lake surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.

This year it was sad to view Lake Dillon's diminished water reserve. Nonetheless, Lake Dillon remains a popular recreation destination.

Drove along the road by Dillon Reservoir. Gorgeous views and lots of places to stop and pull over to look at things.

“Great for picnic right on beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

While staying in Breckenridge we visited Dillon Reservoir. Very pretty and scenic. Free parking right off of highway. We walked with kids maybe .25 mile and brought our backpack and blankets and a picnic lunch. Kids stuck thier toes in the water. Trail system in use, many hikers and runners, and dogs on trail. Just us and another family were the only ones on beach area the day we were there. Very nice to spend family time, enjoyable afternoon. We skipped pebbles and rocks. Wear your sunscreen, bring water, can be very warm with high altitude and reflection from water. Saw a few boats as well. Such a beautiful place. Fun for all ages and families or nice romantic couple time.

“Makes the mountain-top view special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I like that you can boat on it, bike around it, hike around it, and look at it from various vantage points. I dislike that you're not allowed to swim in it. Really, powerboating is ok and swimming isn't? (But I bet it's colder than heck anyway).
