Great campground

We've camped at Peak One a few times and have only ever had great experiences. The facilities are clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the views are beautiful. The campground is close to many hikes, but within the campground itself you can hike along a trail close to the lake (note that…

Smartest place to stay in Summit County, spectacular 360 mountain views

This is the smartest place to stay in Summit County.  You are a few minutes' drive (could walk) into the town of Frisco, in case you want to enjoy the town.  There is a strong signal for mobile phones and I was able to work the entire time we were there.

The campground is spectacular in that…

  • Downtown Frisco, lots of outdoor seating and dog friendly places!

Beautiful!

We really enjoyed this spot! Those sites on the lake seem primo but our site still had some good space and not too close to others (though very few trees so not a ton of privacy and would need a shade in the warmer months). Sunset was beautiful, enjoyed skipping rocks and even some mountain biking…

About This Campground

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.

Recreation

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.

Facilities

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.

Natural Features

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.

Nearby Attractions

Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain ski resorts are all located within 10 miles of Dillon Reservoir. These resorts stay open year round.
