Dillon Marina and Yacht club…The Highest in North America!

05 Jul

Our family  rents a boat here each summer. The experience is one of a kind. This is a highly recommended activity! Yes a the Tikki bar afterwards is the best!;))

Lake Dillon is the largest lake in the area and offers magnificent mountain vistas, with easy access to the Town of Dillon, shopping, lodging, RV sites, and camping. The Dillon Marina hosts exciting weekend sailing regattas and other boating events for fun and sport. The marina offers a full service maintenance shop with slip rentals available for short or long term. Motorboats and sailboats are available for exploring the lake, fishing or basking in the summer sun. The lake is home to Brown trout and Rainbow trout. With 26 miles of shoreline, finding a nice secluded spot to cast is not a problem.

Discover summer fun for the entire family. The Dillon Marina is a full-service marina in Summit County that offers access to beautiful Lake Dillon and world class sailing in Colorado. Boating, trout fishing and mountain recreation opportunities abound. The marina offers boat rentals, sailing instruction, racing regattas and is home to the Dillon Yacht Club, the highest club in North America at over 9000 feet in elevation.

The recreational choices in the area are endless. Across from the marina is a trailhead to miles of paved bike paths offering spectacular scenic tours. The surrounding National Forest also provides mountain-biking, rafting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and camping. Jeep tours on old mountain roads will take you to nearby historical mining towns. Be challenged at one of Summit County’s four championship golf courses. In Dillon, play a set of tennis, or simply take a stroll and have a picnic by the lake. The pace here is easy.
