Campground Review: Peak One Campground, Frisco, CO

Why we chose here: Dillon Lake, Breckenridge and the surrounding area was highly reviewed by fellow travelers. We also had friends in nearby Copper Mountain to visit, so this was a great base to explore the area.

Location: This is a great location.  The campground is right on the lake, we kayaked right from our site.  You can also walk or cycle to nearby Frisco, which has a great little downtown area. You are a short drive from Breckenridge too. Pine beetles have done a number on the trees in the area hand a few years ago they were all cut down.  There is some regrowth now, and the lack of shade is great for solar, but it is a shame to see all the dead trees. 

Sites: The sites are quite variable. All are dry and generally they are well separated.  Our had a hug seating area right on the water. There are only a few sites that are directly on the lake. Sites 45, 46, 49 and 51 are good choices. There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site

Facilities: Restrooms, no showers.  There is water available. There is no dump station, there is a pay one a few miles away on the way to Breckenridge. 

Groceries: There is a Whole Foods and a Natural Grocers in nearby Frisco. 

Reservations: Yes and you definitely need them for summer weekends. We had to move to nearby First Come First Served campground Pine Cove on Friday as Peak One was full.

Cell coverage / WiFi: Yes good coverage from Verizon. AT&T and T-Mobile

Price paid: $22 for a dry site

Date of visit: August 2016

Would we visit again? Yes, being right on the lake was a real treat, and the surrounding area provides lots of choices for recreation activities.
