Whether you are on the lake itself, riding a bike or walking around it or sitting at the Tiki Bar...the views are breathtaking. You can rent a boat from Dillon or Frisco Marina and tootle around the entire reservoir and stop along the way.

If you want a great place to kayak, paddle board, sailing, or fish for fresh trout, this is a great place to go. They don't allow swimming or jet skis, so it is always a quiet place to go!
