“A lot of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Friday Farmer's market”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
