“Scenic Water Taxi Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We took the water taxi from Frisco Marina to Dillon. Very beautiful with The surrounding Mountains framing the beautiful Lake Dillon. Stop and have A cocktail at Pug Ryan's Tiki Bar in Dillon and another one at Island Bar in Frisco after you get off the boat.

“Biking, boating and viewing paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The Dillon Reservoir is an outstanding attraction of Summit County and Colorado. We've biked around the lake, kayaked on the lake and viewed the mountains from all sides. The bike
paths are well maintained and the cyclists are well mannered. It's thrilling riding on the high side of the dam along a narrow path. You can rent a one or two person kayak at the Frisco marina (we didn't check the Dillon Marina) and paddle around for a couple of hours. This is our favorite mountain area of Colorado due to the added attraction of this beautiful reservoir/lake.

“Summit treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The Dillon Reservoir offers something for everyone. The outdoor person can enjoy the biking on paved trails around the lake, good fishing, hiking, bird watching, boating, etc... The views of snow capped mountains are worth the trip

“Beautiful spot for great camping”

Camped at the reservoir. Reasonably priced, clean campsites and flush toilets too! It is close to Frisco and Dillon. Factory outlet shopping, outdoor activities and more are near. We will be back!

“Fun and Amazing Astounding Beauty and Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Rented a n 18 foot run about motorboat from Dillon Marina. Folks there were so patient, informative and courteous! We have never driven a boat, and the runabout was a fast and fun boat that each one of us could drive without any issues. The marina is surrounded by the peaks of Keystone, and the lake runs all the way to Frisco, CO. AWESOME and inexpensive way to speedboat around in the mountains!!!
