There’s nothing quite like a calm day by a body of water in summer. One of the most popular in the Summit County area is Dillon Reservoir, where the Frisco Bay Marina offers a wide range of activities.
Although rental income was lower compared to last year, Frisco Bay Marina still had a solid 2022 summer season with a steady flow of visitors. This is due to both the location and what the marina has to offer.
“This marina is an incredible location as it sits at the end of Frisco’s charming Main Street with views of Mount Royal and Grays and Torreys,” said Marina General Manager Logan Snyder. “I also think it’s a great family-friendly place to spend a day or more.”
Snyder believes people enjoy spending a few days at the marina, in large part because of the variety of things to do, including paddleboarding, fishing, boating, canoeing and kayaking. There’s also a beach, live music, and family dining options. Whether guests want to be on the water or prefer to keep their feet in the sand on the shore, the marina has something for every member of the family.
This, coupled with its close proximity to downtown Frisco and the Frisco Peninsula Recreation Area, is why it won Best Family Entertainment in the 2022 Best of Summit competition.
Snyder pointed out that guests can easily spend a day at the marina and then have a nice dinner in downtown Frisco or take an afternoon bike ride on the peninsula.
“I think all of those areas complement each other here in Frisco,” Snyder said.
In the coming seasons, the Frisco Bay Marina plans to continue expanding business from the Frisco Bay Landing building – which opened last summer – and to landscape the area.
“It’s going to be a big, great lawn park,” Snyder said. “The park will be expanded so that it will be a really nice meeting place for people. There are also future plans to expand the Island Grill and then build a bathhouse for more bathroom and shower options.”
Frisco Bay Marina is located at 267 Marina Road. Visit TownOfFrisco.com for more information.
