Peak One Campground is located on the Dillon Reservoir near the town of Frisco, offering an abundance of recreational activities. The reservoir is encircled by Swan Mountain and the dramatic Gore and Tenmile Ranges. This campground is an ideal setting for guests seeking recreation and relaxation.
Due to the pine beetle infestation and removal of hazard trees, there is little or no shade in the campground.
Dillon Reservoir, often referred to as Lake Dillon, is the greatest draw to this campground. At 3,233 acres, and with 26.8 miles of shoreline, it is an ideal spot for fishing, boating, and sailing.
Anglers will find that the reservoir supports a healthy population of rainbow and brown trout, with an occasional cutthroat trout finding its way into the lake from feeder streams.
Opportunities for hiking and biking in the area abound, including more than 7 paved miles of the 50-mile Summit County trail system.
The Old Dillon Reservoir trail is a favorite. This short, easy trail has spectacular views of the Tenmile Range and the Continental Divide. The Old Dillon Reservoir was built in the 1930s to supply water to the original town of Dillon, which is now covered by the new Dillon Reservoir.
Peak One Campground has 80 sites able to accommodate tents, trailers, and RVs.
The campground is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, flush toilets, and drinking water. Electrical hook-ups are not available.
Firewood is for sale from hosts at the campground.
Boat ramp access is available in the marinas located in the nearby towns of Frisco and Dillon.
In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the 2.3 million acre White River National Forest is a place of serenity and adventure, boasting 8 wilderness areas, 4 defined seasons, and 10 peaks surpassing 14,000 feet in elevation.
Described as being more vertical than horizontal, nearby Eagles Nest Wilderness Area, designated in 1976, is a playground of craggy cliffs, sheer rock faces, alpine lakes, and deep, forested valleys. Visitors will find foot travel across this pristine area challenging and often strenuous, but will be rewarded with spectacular scenery.
Wildlife in the area abounds. Bighorn sheep navigate rocky ridges and bull elk bugle at dusk. Scenic rivers sustain populations of cutthroat, rainbow, and brown trout. Alpine regions provide habitat for pika and ptarmigan. These species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams, and diverse forests to live.
Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain ski resorts are all located within 10 miles of Dillon Reservoir. These resorts stay open year round.

Beautiful views, right on the lake. Some beetle kill has opened up the campground where there used to be trees.
This was a great campground for a night however you must take into account the less time needed to reserve online or else you need to do a walk-in site. If it’s filled check out Pine Cove which is down the street.
We come here every year. The kids like to play in the reservoir and ride their bikes around it or around the campground. A lot of the sites are closer than I would prefer. You can find a few sites that offer more privacy. The negative is that there is a lot of lose dirt where you cook and eat. Also even though there is a ten o’clock curfew, I’ve been there when it’s ignored and people are partying.
The bathrooms are okay. Pretty clean. They have well water for dishes and it’s drinkable. No showers.
If you plan early for July 4th you can watch fireworks from your site.
This is a very family friendly campground! Sites are kind of close together, but you are beside the lake! And some spots have trail access to the lake, so bring your water toys! The ten mile range pops into view starting with Peak 1. Very close to the town of Frisco, so it isn’t the quietest.
Climbed to the top!
