Camping, hiking, bike trails, paddle boarding.......recreation paradise. I walk my dog here in the summer he loves swimming in the lake. One of my favorite places in Summit County.

So the marina was under construction, which meant there was barely anyone at the park. "Forest Gump" moment for us because we picnicked, sat on the beach and on one of the many benches and just soaked up this scene with the park to ourselves...More

I first saw the Dillon Reservoir while driving on Highway 9 near Frisco. You don't realize how huge it is until you drive across the Dillon Dam road from Dillon to Frisco. You don't see much of the reservoir from I-70 even though you drive...More

On a drive we stopped here for the view. It was cold and snowing so we didn't get to do the hiking or biking. It would be a good place to do that when the weather is better. Beautiful panoramic views. There is construction there...More

Rode our bikes along the water for miles and miles! The scenery is great! There were places to stop to view the bald eagles. We also saw restrooms along the way.

Wonderful views. Great place to jog, bike or walk. The road runs between Frsco and Silverthorne. Easy access to the reservoir. No swimming. Great view down to Silverthorne.

We love to bike around the reservoir in the autumn (Sep-Oct) when the leaves are turning. Just beautiful; not a difficult ride, and always uplifting.

It's a long trail, professionally built, paved...around the lake. Very picturesque. We love it. It's away from the main road so it's quiet and safe from vehicles.

I walked up from the outlet mall along the bicycle path. It was a beautiful day with bright sunshine.

Great Views friendly town. Stop into the Dillon Dam Brewery. They have good food and great beer. Hamburgers and fried chicken both were great.

There are many campsites around the lake. Suggest you contact the Frisco tourist center.

For boats yes, but I don't think anything is needed for rental of kayaks, canoes, paddle boards.

Yes. There is a great paved bike/walking path all the way around the lake. I believe the total distance is about 10 miles can also hike along the shoreline and out on the peninsulas. These are easy paths.
