About the Frisco Bay Marina
Located on the shores of Dillon Reservoir at the eastern end of Main Street, the Frisco Bay Marina is where lake life meets quintessential mountain town. At just over nine thousand feet in elevation, this certified clean marina is your access point for these pristine alpine waters, a world-class sailing destination where regattas are frequently held.
Summers in Frisco typically involve blue skies and temps in the 70s or 80s with low humidity. Maybe there’ll be a brief and refreshing mid-afternoon “sunshower”. In other words, summertime is usually just about as perfect as it gets.
Things to do at the Frisco Bay Marina
Whatever water sports you’re into, odds are we’ve got the equipment and gear to make it happen. The Frisco Bay Marina rents pontoon and fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards, fishing poles and so much more!
There’s also a sandy beach, waterside dining, and Marina Park, which has a playground ideal for a family picnic break while the kids blow off some steam.
Know before you go
We’re all about adopting a spontaneous sense of adventure here in Frisco. However, if you’re planning on renting a boat or watercraft of any kind, don’t show up without a reservation, or you’ll probably be out of luck.
Also, although we do have a sandy beach here, there’s no lifeguard on duty. And frankly, the best way to enjoy Dillon Reservoir is on top of it. Due to local regulations swimming and water skiing are not permitted on Dillon Reservoir – bummer, we know. The water in this high alpine reservoir is simply too cold for swimming; after all, it was literally snow right before it arrived here.
The Frisco Bay Marina offices also carry snacks and refreshments so you won’t go hungry while on the water.
Reminder- Paid summer parking at the Frisco Bay Marina
Paid parking at all Marina parking lots will go from Friday, May 26, 2023 through Monday, September 4, 2023.
- The Town of Frisco has contracted with Interstate Parking to enforce Marina paid parking.
- To pay or appeal parking tickets received at the Marina parking lots or if you exceeded the three hour, free parking limit on Main Street, you must go through the online payment or appeal process on the Interstate Parking website, as the Frisco Police Department will be unable to assist with these parking tickets, as they did not issue them. Tickets may not be appealed or paid over the phone.
