Lake Dillon, Dillon, CO

The Dillon Reservoir is a popular spot for sail boating, kayaking, fishing and so much more. It ranges from Frisco to Dillon and hosts many outdoor activities. The Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee is a huge help in maintaining these outdoor activities and manages the reservoir.

Other than playing out on the Dillon Reservoir, people can hang around it and go camping. This way you’re right on the water and can go out on the water whenever your heart desires. There are so many ways to take advantage of the reservoir and to make sure you’re doing it right, a Special Event application must be filled out. It’s also not a bad idea to look over the rules and regulations to make sure you are cooperating with the people who help maintain the reservoir.

If you don’t want to spend the whole day in the water, you can always look into the recreation areas that are around. There are camp grounds, fishing points and bike paths all along the reservoir. If you want nothing but to hunt, check out the waterfowl hunting area and see what you can catch.

There is a lot to do on or around the Dillon Reservoir but there are a few things you can’t do. Swimming, water skiing, wading and scuba diving are prohibited. But who says you can’t lie on the sand and catch some rays?
