Dillon, CO, comes alive in summer. When the lake unfreezes and the air grows warmer, the marina opens and suddenly summer Dillon activities are in full force around the dock, on the nearby nature trails and at the local playgrounds. Standup paddleboarders wake early to take advantage of a calm Lake Dillon where winds that pick up later in the afternoon are perfect for sailors. Birdwatching is a favorite pastime even if the stock is not overly exotic. You’re likely to see gulls, ospreys, magpies, buffleheads, ducks, geese and even bald eagles. Paddlers and small boaters enjoy an advantage with Dillon summer activities since they can dismount easily to explore the many small islands that dot the lake. These woodsy patches, some with a tiny strip of landing beach, are just the spot for weary paddling arms to rest and are picnic-perfect if you agree to pack-out whatever you bring in and, of course, to not feed any animals. The Lake Dillon Disc Golf Course (LDDGC) opened in 2014 along the south-facing slope of Tenderfoot Mountain to support this growing sport and is another fine summertime Dillon activity. The course features thick stands of pine and brushy meadows with huge elevation drops between holes to challenge players of all abilities.
