Affectionately known as the “Main Street to the Rockies,” Frisco is a colorful little town surrounded by world-class ski resorts. Considering it’s only 90 minutes from Denver via Interstate 70, Frisco is a popular weekend getaway for Front Range locals as well as out-of-state visitors. The town’s situated between the Dillon Reservoir and the mountains, making it a basecamp for hiking, biking, and rock climbing adventures into the surrounding Rocky Mountains. Campers will find lakeside campsites in the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Area and the nearby White River National Forest.        

Where to Go

Dillon Reservoir Recreation Area On the eastern end of Main Street, the Frisco Bay Marina provides easy access to the Dillon Reservoir and its 27 miles of shoreline. The marina offers kayak, paddleboard, and pontoon boat rentals, boat tours, and guided fishing trips. Three national forest campgrounds sit just minutes from downtown Frisco in the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Area. Breckenridge Just 10 miles south of Frisco, Breckenridge is a top Colorado summer destination and home to one of America’s favorite ski resorts. From mountain biking and hiking to fly fishing, rafting, and horseback riding, the town has it all, including live music and festivals in summer. The closest campgrounds are around the Dillon Reservoir, while free dispersed camping is available on Boreas Pass Road.  Green Mountain Reservoir Campers will find more options at Green Mountain Reservoir, a 40-minute drive from Frisco.
