True- and also surrounded by incredible mountains and the marinas in Dillon and Frisco- been up there visiting for over 25 years- never ceases to be beautiful. Highly recommended all year (spectacular in fall with colors, winter with snow and every other time for the magic of summer).

I'm more of a road rider, but brought my hybrid so I could ride with the family in Colorado. Spent about an hour cruising around the Dillon Lake and it was just lovely! Some family members also ran/hiked around part of the lake. Not too crowded! We also enjoyed watching the sailboats and paddleboarders.

What a place to wake up too! Got to town around 8 am 5 min from here there's a Starbucks so coffee was good . All you have left is to relax and leave the phone in the car.

We always enjoy walking around the reservoir and the concerts are always fun. The view is spectacular and the sailboats are fun to watch.

Lake Dillon is huge and beautiful! You can walk, bike or drive along it. It was right outside our hotel at Best Western. There's lots of good eats too in that certain location.

What a beautiful lake and so much to do in and around lake. You can hike, bike, SUP, sail, power boat, sit on beaches and enjoy the backdrop of the mountains. Check out Marina to rent, but in summer make a reservation at least a week in advance for weekends as they get sold out (we didn't make a rez,... More

We took a speed boat out one day and the next day a sail boat. Both times the staff ran a seamless operation. The boats were clean, well taken care of, and the staff was knowledgable, friendly and cared about your safety. We had a great time and will return again!

I stayed near the lake and rode my bike and walked along the paths around the lake. Great views. I wish I was able to stay longer and enjoy this lake.
