Nearly 50 years since its first season, Heaton Bay Campground in Silverthorne, Colorado, may appear and sound different from the crowds that frequent the popular camping spot.

Even in 2021, Heaton Bay Campground has maintained the jaw-dropping, accessible facilities that draw people from all over the world to the banks of Dillon Reservoir, a report said.

The campground, which is situated on Dillon Dam Road, currently has 81 campsites that allow access to the lake for fishing, boating, and—in recent times—stand-up paddleboarding.

The area is an excellent spot for people to have access to the Summit County rec path system. Its proximity to the path means that it’s only a quick run or bike ride from the region’s best and most stunning landscapes.

About a half-century back, Dillon Ranger District Volunteer Bob Reinert camped at U.S. Forest Service’s Heaton Bay Campground for the first time. Today, the campground continues to be an absolute favorite.

The main draw of the camping area is the fishing, Reinert said.

“People really like the bay there,” he said. “They can drive their boat in and dock it in Frisco, then bring it to the bays and dock their boat there. I think that’s what a lot of people like about that camp spot. And it’s a nice, pretty place. You’re not too close to your neighbors.”

In terms of booking the fanciest reservation-only attraction, Reinert said that all 81 spots get booked in a heartbeat. If you’re planning to stay there, it’s best to book your spot at the earliest possible date.
