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.
Best of all, you don’t have to own a boat or be a seasoned sailor to get out on the water. With boat and gear rentals, lessons to learn or hone skills, and tours, there are plenty of ways to explore this idyllic 3,000-acre lake.
Things to Do at the Frisco Bay Marina
Whatever watersports you’re into, odds are we’ve got the equipment and gear to make it happen. With a boat launch ramp for boat owners, the Frisco Bay Marina also rents everything from pontoon boats to stand-up paddleboards to fishing poles. Due to local regulations water skiing isn’t permitted on Dillon Reservoir – bummer, we know. Fortunately, we’ve got plenty of other activities you can do on the water instead, including canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and fishing.
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.
Learn a new watersport or take a tour at the marina
At the Frisco Bay Marina, there are ample ways to play on the water. With sailboat lessons and rentals and a rowing center offering sculling clinics, you can learn a new skill upon arrival.
If you’d rather ride than steer, you can take a water taxi from Frisco to Dillon.

Plan your visit to the Frisco Bay Marina
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. Summer boating season on Dillon Reservoir runs from early June through early- to mid-September.
Paid Summer Parking at the Frisco Bay Marina
- Paid parking in all Marina lots began on June 10, 2022 and will go through September 6th, 2022. Marina paid parking is being implemented and enforced on behalf of the Town of Frisco by Interstate Parking; visit their site a ParkFrisco.com. Parking tickets issued by Interstate Parking on behalf of the Town of Frisco are as enforceable as those issued by the Town of Frisco Police Department and are $75 per violation.

Options for powerboat and sailboat owners
Read more about the Frisco Bay Marina boat launch ramp and how to access the water on Dillon Reservoir. The Frisco Bay Marina also offers boat repairs and maintenance, along with options for boat slips, storage and moorings.
Don’t own a boat?
We’ve got you covered. We offer rentals of power boats, sailboats, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and fishing poles.
Dining options at the Frisco Bay Marina
Located next to the historic Lund House at the Marina, The Island Grill serves casual lunch, dinner, and drinks on open-air decks with views of the water. Take-out is available for a waterside picnic. Don’t miss the live music Fridays starting at 4:00pm.
If you’re in a grab-and-go kind of mood, the Marina office and store sells snacks and beverages.
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. The water in this high alpine reservoir is simply too cold for swimming; after all, it was literally snow right before it arrived here. Swimming is not currently allowed on Dillon Reservoir anywhere.
Frisco Bay Marina office and retail store
The Frisco Bay Marina office is your destination for boat and equipment rentals and safety training. You can rent equipment (canoes, paddleboards, kayaks), gear, fishing poles, and parts, and grab a souvenir to remember your adventures on the water while you’re at it. We also carry snacks and refreshments so you won’t go hungry while on the water.
