Secret Stash – Boating & Sailing On Lake Dillon

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Tuesday, July 17th, 2012 at 11:00am.

Recreating on Lake Dillon is a must for visitors and locals alike. Lake Dillon is home to two marinas – the Dillon Marina and Frisco Bay Marina. Dillon Reservoir is a multi-use recreation and water-storage facility owned and operated by Denver Water. It is the largest water storage facility in the Denver Water system. Dillon Reservoir’s surface area of 3,233 acres and 26.8 miles of shoreline support many recreational activities.

Dillon Marina
The Dillon Marina offers slips and storage, with some slip sizes still available for the 2012 summer season. The launch ramp is open 7 days/week, 8:30am-5:30pm (weather permitting).  Sailing lessons are available for beginners and intermediates. Tours and private lessons are also available. Sailboat, speed boat and pontoon daily rentals are available through the marina. 

Dillon Marina is home to the Tiki Bar, a lakeside hot spot for après lake, après work and just for fun. Grab some friends and grab some beers in a sweet lakeside setting. There is also a nearby park for the kids and picnic areas.

Contact the Dillon Marina at 970.468.5100, or info@dillonmarina.com

Frisco Bay Marina
The Frisco Bay Marina also offers slips, moorings and storage. Rent canoes and kayaks onsite as well as power boats, on a daily or hourly basis. Sailboat lessons, rentals and tours are available through Windrider of the Rockies – www.windrider.us, or 970.468.5006. The launch ramp at the Frisco Marina is closed for the summer, boats must launch from Dillon Marina.

Frisco Island Grill is a welcoming lakeside setting on the Frisco side of the lake. Like the Tiki Bar, it’s a great place to meet friends after a day on the lake. Relax and enjoy the surrounding mountain views and beautiful Lake Dillon. There is also a park and picnic areas adjacent to Frisco Island Grill.
