Frisco, Colorado, can be considered the base camp to the Rocky Mountains.
Located in the center of Summit County and in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Frisco is within 30 minutes of six world-class ski resorts: Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Loveland. Beaver Creek is about 45 minutes west.
Once a mining town, Frisco is now home to avid skiers and adventurers loving the area's camping, hiking, biking, fishing and events.
On Main Street visitors will enjoy boutique shopping and a plethora of bars and restaurants.
Frisco sits on the shores of Dillon Reservoir, where the Frisco Bay Marina offers motor boat and paddle sport rentals, as well as a lakeside park and dining. 2019 brought a lot of change to the marina, as the Town of Frisco took on an epic improvement project 10+ years in the making. The “Big Dig” project deepened the Frisco Bay and brought the addition of a much bigger sandy beach, an expanded and relocated boat ramp and separation of motorized and paddle sport areas at the marina.
The Frisco Adventure Park, just minutes from the marina and Main Street, also offers summer adventure with miles of single track trails, camping, a free bike park, skate park and disc golf course. Winter at the Adventure Park brings a tubing hill, a Nordic Center, a beginner ski/ride hill and horse drawn sleigh rides. The Adventure Park also saw a lot of changes in 2019 with the addition of a completely new free skate park, which is now nearly three times the size of the old park with 28,000-square-feet of jumps, bumps, bowl pockets, transition areas and more. A free new climbing area for kids was also added next to the skate park, featuring three realistic looking boulders 8-10 feet high made from glass-fiber-reinforced concrete and providing different level of difficulty to suit children of different ages and abilities.
Frisco is family friendly, full of fun things to do, offers lake access ... plus, it's expansive mountain and lake views make it uniquely beautiful.
It's a one-of-a-kind, historic mountain town not to be missed if you're visiting Colorado or day-tripping across the state.
