Today, Dillon, Co. is a lakeside, mountain resort community and if you can imagine no lake Dillon and three rivers coming together where a trading post and clusters of cabins might have existed, then you can imagine the first town of Dillon. This was the scene in the late 1800s until Denver needed water storage in the high country. The town had to relocate to the northeastern shore of the lake while the reservoir was completed in 1963. You can visit the town's beautiful hillside cemetery that was moved from the former site. Now the lakeside mountain town of Dillon has a variety of amenities. One can find eateries housed in buildings from the Old Town of Dillon, microbreweries, a bowling alley, batting cages, Gart Sports outlet, and Saturday night summer concert/theatre performances in the Lake Dillon amphitheater.
