“Live here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We visit the lake often. And the county is trying hard to accommodate new activities. A place that holds close to my heart since childhood! Hope the water levels rise this year.

“One of the reasons I moved here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

You dont' have to do ANYTHING just sit still and enjoy the view, or, you can ride the bike all around it, taking in the breathtaking view as you get breathless on your ride, or go sailing, hiking, have a picnic, anything, summer or winter, seems so much better with this body of water around!

“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 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!!!
