The Marina Tiki bar is excellent if the weather cooperates! This is a do not miss.

Dillon Marina


Dillon Dillon MarinaDillon marina is the hub of sailing activity. The Tiki Bar is definitely the post-sailing headquarters and a favorite summertime hangout. As the big-hearted winds gust in the afternoon, it is likely to see a fleet of J-24s racing around a prescribed course or a couple of sea kayakers coming in from a calm morning paddle.

If you can imagine no lake Dillon and three rivers coming together where a trading post and clusters of cabins might have existed, then you can imagine the first town of Dillon. This was the scene in the late 1800s until Denver needed water storage in the high country. The town had to relocate to the northeastern shore of the lake while the reservoir was completed in 1963. You can visit the town’s beautiful hillside cemetery that was moved from the former site. Now the lakeside mountain town of Dillon has a variety of amenities. One can find eateries housed in buildings from the Old Town of Dillon, microbreweries, a bowling alley, batting cages, Gart Sports outlet, and Saturday night summer concert/theatre performances in the Lake Dillon amphitheater. A trip to the old school house, which is now the Summit historical societys museum, is worth the visit to learn more about the area.


First rate family Summer fun with world class sailing, boat rentals, sailing instruction, racing regattas and at 9,000 feet in elevation, Dillon is home for the highest yacht club in North America.

Lake dillon has three rivers that empty into the lake:
1. Blue River:
2. Ten Mile Creek
3. Snake River

If you like fishing you will love fishing the high country and Lake dillon. You can stay on the lake or try one of the three rivers that feed Lake

    This is a great, fresh perspective on this subject. Seriously was not expecting that when I started off studying. Your concepts were easy to understand that I wondered why I never looked at it before. Pleased to know that there’s an individual out there that definitely knows what he’s discussing! Excellent job.
