Dillon Reservoir - Summit County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The reservoir provides refuge to waterfowl, especially during the winter months when the south end is the last portion free of ice. Goldeneyes and even the occasional Common Loon have been seen here. Summer viewing is not as productive, though White Pelicans do visit the area on occasion.

Habitat: Reservoir
Directions: From Interstate 70, take Exit 203 or CO-9 toward Frisco and Breckenridge. Travel about 5 miles to the traffic light at Farmer's Corner. The Summit High School and a gas station are on the right. Turn left onto Swan Mountain Road and take another, almost immediate left, onto the Summit Water Treatment facility road. This road will take you to the edge of the reservoir, and even into the reservoir if you're not careful.
