Hit Colorado's ski town highway, I-70, and discover a laid-back mountain town with a ton of conveniences.

Go disc golfing at 9,075 feet and see how far it goes at the Frisco Adventure Park. Just off of I-70, the adventure park sits in the historical town of Frisco on the shores of the Dillon Reservoir.

Beyond the free disc golf course, the adventure park offers other fun activities for everyone in your car. The skate park and the bike park, complete with dirt jumps, are free and open to the public. But if you just want to relax and not worry about planning activities and dinner, consider a chuck wagon ride from the adventure park to a site nestled below the mountains for cowboy golf, cornhole, a BBQ dinner and Wild West show.

On the Water

Near the Frisco Adventure Park is the Frisco Bay Marina located on the shores of the Dillon Reservoir and on the east end of Frisco’s Main Street. Sit on the sandy beach and watch the sailboats in the distance. Or rent a powerboat, kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard here. Never kayaked before? Sign up for a guided tour and lesson.

At night, settle into one of Frisco’s three National Forest campgrounds, two on the shores of Dillon Reservoir and within walking distance of the Frisco Adventure Park.

Fuel Up Organically

Frisco is a great place to stock up for the rest of your trip. If you’re looking for organic foods, you’ll be happy to know there’s a Whole Foods Market in town. There’s also a Safeway grocery store. For Colorado-grown fruits and vegetables, stop at Uncle John’s Farm Stand at 800 Main St. It’s open late June through October selling produce from Palisade, Colo., including peaches and tomatoes, along with free-range, hormone-free beef.
