How lucky we are to have such a beautiful place near home. There are good views from many spots around the lake, but be sure to go to Sapphire Point.

We were in Dillon on vacation. The lake was beautiful. We attended a church service at the amphitheater, we felt welcome and very comfortable. We also went on big Eds chartered fishing boat. We really enjoyed the fishing the boat, and our guide!

Love this place. We visit regularly and always something to see and do around Lake Dillon. It is fun to rent a boat at the Dillon Marina. It is fun to check out the lake from Old Lake Dillon Reservoir. Take your kids they love it!

We just rode the bike path around Dillon Reservoir, and really enjoyed it. The path from the Frisco Marina around to Swan Mountain Road had been completed for a while, but we had read that the path over Swan Mountain was complete. That's true, sort of. The new portion of the path, from US 6 at the east end of the Reservoir, is beautiful, taking a different path than the road. Quiet, scenic, really nice. The problem is that, from the parking lot at the top of Swan Mountain, the bike path ends and suddenly you're on the road with all the truck traffic. It's a short descent from there, about a mile, but for people who don't like riding on busy roads (like my wife) it's a little scary. From there you join the path from Breckenridge to Frisco, back to the Marina. A total of about 18 miles with some ups and downs and the climb up Swan Mountain.

We are headed back to Dillon for a second summer and plan to use the water taxi to see the Lake. It is an easy inexpensive way to get on the water without the hassle of renting a boat. Amazingly they take bikes and dogs on the boat? I guess that's summit county for ya. We may use their charter service one night for a family reunion. You should check it out, as the views from the lake are incredible.
