Dillon Reservoir


Dillon Reservoir

Dillon Reservoir, also known as Lake Dillon, is a popular tourist destination in Dillon, Colorado. The reservoir was created by the construction of Dillon Dam in 1963, a project initiated by the Denver Water Board to provide water to the Front Range area. This large and stunning reservoir is nestled among the scenic Rocky Mountains and spans over 3,200 acres, offering a wealth of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, and photographers alike.

Visitors to Dillon Reservoir can enjoy an array of recreational activities, including sailing, fishing, hiking, and even ice-fishing during the winter months. The reservoir has three marinas, making it easy for tourists to rent boats, kayaks, or paddleboards. The surrounding area also boasts miles of well-maintained trails that allow for hiking, biking, or running with breathtaking vistas of the lake and mountains. The reservoir is also home to several annual events, including the popular Dillon Ice Melt in April, which draws crowds to watch massive chunks of ice break free and float across the lake.
