Activities in Frisco
Surrounded by public lands on three sides and a pristine alpine reservoir on the other, Frisco is the ideal basecamp for year-round Colorado Rocky Mountain adventure.
For a small town (1.9 square miles), there is massive amounts of outdoor fun to be had in and around Frisco. Whether you’re visiting Frisco for just an afternoon or a weeklong vacation, there is always something fun to do here!
Frisco Adventure Park
You can start at the Frisco Adventure Park, where you can bike, skateboard, and play disc golf during the summer and go tubing in the winter. Just across the road is the Frisco Nordic Center, with cross-country and skate-skiing and snowshoe rentals, lessons, and trails. If you’re craving a quintessential Wild West experience, you can go on a sleigh or chuck wagon ride.
So many trails!
There are miles of free access trails year-round such as biking, hiking, and running on nearby public lands, on the paved recreation path, and at the Peninsula Recreation Area, which extends into Dillon Reservoir, and has U.S. Forest Service campgrounds, and picnic areas.
Named one of the “most Instagrammable places in Colorado” by the Colorado Tourism Office, the Frisco Bay Marina is a stunning setting for watersport adventures. Offering lessons, rentals, and repairs, you can rent a pontoon boat or go sailing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding on the blue alpine waters of Dillon Reservoir.
If you prefer exploring from behind the wheel for a change of pace or to get your toddler to finally take a nap, there are plenty of scenic drives to explore in and around Frisco.
