Surrounded by three National Forests, Frisco is a quaint mountain town with a rich history. But, quaint doesn't mean boring. In fact, there is so much to do in Frisco, you'll want to stay awhile. Located in Summit County, Frisco is nestled up against the Dillon Reservoir. Whether you go in the winter or the summer (or both), Frisco will quickly become one of your favorite destinations.
Ten Mile Creeks offers a Class 3 section where kayakers can practice freestyling. If you're up for more of a challenge, try out the Class 4 and 5 areas to master your whitewater running maneuvers.

Whitewater rafting opportunities are also available.
Take a ride on a draft-mule-team drawn wagon to a cowboy campsite with a mountain backdrop. As the "cowhands" prepare your BBQ meal, you can relax and enjoy the view or practice your roping skills, horseshoe throwing and cornhole aiming. Watch a wild west show after dinner to complete the evening.
