“Get outdoors and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lake Dillon is a man-made reservoir. It is huge. There is a paved bike (recreation) path which goes around much of the lake (start in Frisco or Dillon) and offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In the summer and fall, you should take the water taxi which runs between the marinas in Frisco and Dillon.

“A lot of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Beautiful lake framed by the Ten Mile Mountain range. Water craft rentals available. Motorized and otherwise. Food and the water's edge at the Tiki Bar. Local brews available too. You will not be disappointed. Take your bike, your stroller and good walking shoes as you will want to explore.

“Lake Dillon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

A great reservoir surrounded by mountains. You can sail, canoe, or pontoon it. No waterskiing or jet skis. You can also ride your bike around the lake. A great place to relax!!!

“A biking paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We love biking with our tandem on Lake Dillon. Their are over 200+ miles of paved paths connecting all the major ski resorts during the summer. Towns along the bike path include: Keystone village, Dillon, Frisco, Breckenridge and Silverthorne.

“Love this lake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Dillon Reservoir and the surrounding area is beautiful year round. There are lots of things to do, or nothing to do if you choose. The water level is very low this year as it has been for the past several years, but it is still a beautiful place.
