Things To Do on Lake Dillon

With warmer temperatures and plenty of sunshine, it’s definitely getting more obvious that winter is coming to an end. It can be a little depressing when the chairlifts stop turning but there are definitely some awesome summer activities not to far behind. Right here in Summit County, Colorado is Lake Dillon. Built in 1965, this man-made high alpine reservoir is the largest water storage facility owned and operated by Denver Water. This high alpine lake offers some awesome summertime pastimes and is a great place to check out if you haven’t before.

The first thing to do on Lake Dillon is get out on the water. The Frisco Bay Marina offers a variety of ways to explore Lake Dillon including Stand-Up Paddleboards, Canoes and Kayaks, and Power and Sailboats. With the Lake being at 9,017 feet, the boating season is weather dependent but tends to run from early June to mid September. The Marina offers a variety of lessons and guided tours as well perfect for first timers or those who want to just enjoy the ride.

If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, the Dillon Ampitheater offers some great live entertainment and a place to sit back and hang out with a few friends. Featuring both hardscape and lawn seating that can accommodate up to 5,000 people, the Dillon Ampitheater has free live music on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the summer.

Another great spot to kick back and relax is the Pug Ryan’s Tiki Bar at the Dillon Marina. Weather permitting, the bar is open everyday from mid-May to September from 11:30 A.M. to Sunset. This is the perfect spot to sit under an umbrella, sip on a cold drink, eat some good food and watch sailboats skim across the water and see some awesome sunsets.

Now that you know a little more about things to do on Lake Dillon be sure to get out there this summer! Don’t forget to give us a call at Peak 1 Express when looking for a ride into the mountains.
