Summit County Travel Guide


Plan Your Summit County Vacation

Lake Dillon, a 3,233-acre artificial reservoir with four narrow arms and almost 27 miles of shoreline, sits at the heart of Summit County. The lake is guarded on the northwest by the steep Gore Range and on the southwest by the Tenmile Range (a part of the Mosquito Range), and to the east by the Continental Divide. Along the northern shore sit Dillon and her sister town Silverthorne, while Frisco hugs a southwest arm of the lake. Breckenridge is roughly 5 miles south of Lake Dillon, backed up against the Tenmile Range.
