“Great Forest Service Campground .... But Know Before You Go”

Reviewed Aug 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at site C-27 from 5 – 12 August 2018. Heaton Bay is great little Forest Service campground, but campers need to understand what this campground is all about before planning your trip. This campground is situated along the shores of the Dillon Reservoir which positions it right in the middle of the three Colorado tourist... more

“Great forest service campground near Dillon Reservoir”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2017

Overall Rating

A very convenient place to camp near the bike path and the cute towns of Dillon, Silverthorne, and Frisco. We came in without reservations and could only get a site for a couple nights but while there I booked reservations at two more different sites so we had to move a few times. The sites were for the most part large, fairly level, a... more

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

All the shopping you can desire close by, and with a fantastic Whole Foods too! Amazing hiking and biking trails nearby, and you have the huge bay to boat around in. Si... more

Reviewed Oct 13, 2016

Overall Rating

Whether one is on the road with a one night stay in mind or a week long vacation in Summit this is a centrally located base camp. My stays have spanned a few years of diversified stays of one night to 12 nights with and without any reservations. It is wise to reserve here for the weekend. Found staying in the bay quiet, enjoyed ... more
