South end of Lake Dillon Drive
Submitted by: Dave Pierce
The public areas of this small mountain resort town provide activities year round, in a breathtaking setting.
The entire facility is situated on a wooded peninsula with views of four major mountain ranges and two ski areas. Lake Dillon is the highest-altitude sailing lake in the U.S., and Dillon was named one of 10 best sailng towns in U.S. by Sailing Magazine.
What Makes Amphitheater-Park-Marina a Great Place?
For walkers, hikers and cyclists, Lake Dillon can be accessed by Summit County's 50-mile paved path that connects to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Silverthorne and Frisco - all year-round destination resort counties, and all within 12 miles. It is also quickly accessed via I-70, Colorado's major east/west interstate.
First-time visitors find the views, the air and the sky awesome. So do locals like me...after 24 years...
Spring-Summer Fall offers full marina service, weekly free and paid concerts in the amphitheater, and a Farmers' Market every Friday. Dillon Community Church services attract 500-800 people every Sunday morning. There is also trout fishing from the beaches (no swimming allowed - too cold), hiking, biking, picnicking, weddings, family meetings... the works!
This is a great friendly place where no one is afraid of strangers. It's used by people of all ages and there are no criminal activities of the sort city dwellers might find common.
