Make sure to make time to stop by Sapphire Point to feed the chipmunks. Just grab some sunflower seeds and walk just a short bit to find a beautiful view and friendly chipmunks. They are very friendly and will eat right out of your hands. My 3 year old loved it and so did I! Just bring either shelled or... More

We rented a condo in Dillon for the entire family. It had a great view of the lake. It was the weekend of the Dillon lake sailing regatta. We especially enjoyed watching the sailboat races. The bike path around the lake is great. We rented bikes and took the grandchildren on a scenic ride. The bike path only has a... More

Amazing views of the Dillon Reservoir and surrounding areas. If the visibility is clear and unlimited, the views are breathtaking. Sapphire Point is a short walk from the parking area and well worth the exercise. If you have kids, or kids-at-heart, you'll love seeing all the chipmunks and birds.

This is a beautiful setting! Dillon has done an excellent job with the pedestrian and bike trails complete with seating and picnic areas with wonderful views. I never got tired of looking at this scenery.

The views of this lake are simply breathtaking. There a marina (to rent boats, kayaks, paddle boats, etc), an amphitheater, covered picnic tables, a great playground for the little ones, Friday morning farmers' market....so much to see and do along this lake!

Kayaking with Kyle on the Dillon Reservoir was a highlight of our trip! We took 19 people on a late-afternoon tour and all enjoyed it. Kyle was knowledgeable and kept our many teenagers busy but safe.

Lake Dillon is a beautiful spot in the summer, surrounded by beautiful mountains. And many many things to do nearby, no matter the season. The views are "ooh!" and "ahh!" from just about every angle and vantage point. A great place to hike, bike, sail, or just sit and view. What's most amazing is that this beautiful "mountain lake" is... More

First of all, l must say that Dillon is MY vacation spot that I go to each year. And one of the reasons is because of the Dillon Reservoir that I have to visit each time. There is nothing like getting out and walking/hiking the area around the reservoir, whether it's sunny out or not. . . you will enjoy... More

True- and also surrounded by incredible mountains and the marinas in Dillon and Frisco- been up there visiting for over 25 years- never ceases to be beautiful. Highly recommended all year (spectacular in fall with colors, winter with snow and every other time for the magic of summer).

I'm more of a road rider, but brought my hybrid so I could ride with the family in Colorado. Spent about an hour cruising around the Dillon Lake and it was just lovely! Some family members also ran/hiked around part of the lake. Not too crowded! We also enjoyed watching the sailboats and paddleboarders.
