Most locals and visitors agree that the top Frisco, CO, attraction is Lake Dillon. This City of Denver reservoir resides at 9,017 feet above sea level, spans 3,300 acres and boasts 25 miles of shoreline surrounded by majestic peaks. Boating and other water activities are weather dependent, but the season runs typically from early June to mid-September. Fed by mountain runoff, Ten Mile Creek and the Snake and Blue rivers, the water averages a chilly 38 degrees. Swimming is forbidden, while kayaking, standup paddleboarding, sailing and other boating is encouraged. For those who want to get out on the water but not command the helm, boat tours and a water taxi between the Frisco Bay and Dillon Marinas offer all the sunshine and breezes you’re hoping for along with explorations of the lake’s many coves and a bit of history that explains how and why Lake Dillon came to reside at its current location. Boat and shore-based fishing are also a huge Frisco, CO, attraction. Brown trout, rainbow trout, arctic char and Kokanee salmon (found at the Ten Mile inlet) are the primary varieties to look for. A small beach at the marina serves as a launching point for standup paddles, an annual sand castle competition and place for canine buddies to romp.
