Dillon Reservoirs Best Hikes, Rides, & Camping

Dillon Reservoir is situated in the middle of the Tenmile Range, the Front Range and the Gore Range in Summit County. It sits at a 9,000 elevation and is considered among the most active leisure sites of Central Colorado.
The Blue River’s natural flow was cut off because of the Dillon Dam construction which was part of the Thompson Project. As a result, the Dillon Reservoir was created to provide Denver’s water supply, creating one of the most exciting recreational locations in the Rocky Mountains area.
