Best and highest lake to sail. Get out on any water craft, get a drink and enjoy the view. Must see! If you can make sure to catch a free show at the amphitheater. One of the best small outdoor venues to enjoy some tunes.

The path along the lake is our favorite for bicycling and walking with incredible views. The town of Frisco at the west end is a great destination as well.

Nothing can beat a lake surrounded by mountains. While you aren't allowed to swim in Dillon Reservoir (too cold), there are so many other things to do on the lake including sailing, paddle sports (even stand up paddle boarding and a rowing club, camping and...More

I love the bike/walk path as it has so many amazing views of both the lake as well as the many surrounding mountain peaks. Super well maintained and smooth and well worth many return trips.

Large lake surrounded by mountains snow capped much of the year. Marina with boat fishing and sail boat rentals. Lots of sail boat races. Trail around lake is a great walk

It's been decades, but this location is tried and true. The glittering surface of the water is interrupted only by the occasional sailboat, paddleboat or canoe. Meander along the shoreline, enjoy the refreshing reservoir, or socialize at the marina's tiki bar. The shoreline is more...More

There are many campsites! Our favorite campground on the lake is Prospectors Campground. We've also stayed at Peak One Campground.
