Prospector Campground is located on Dillon Reservoir between Keystone and Frisco on Swan Mountain Road. The reservoir is encircled by Swan Mountain and the dramatic Gore and Tenmile mountain ranges. In addition to boating, there is a variety of activities including camping, fishing, picnicking, bicycling, and hiking.
1. Know before you go
Plan your trip and check weather conditions. Make sure phones are charged, and pack plenty of water in reuseable bottles.
2. Leave it as you find it
Plants, rocks and natural features will live forever in a photo. Leave them for others to find. Building structures or carving into trees destroys the natural beauty of the natural landscape.
3. Trash the Trash
Bring along trash bags to pack out your waste, and pick up the waste you see, even if it is not yours. Please take doggy waste bags with you to dispose of animal waste properly as it is damaging to the ecosystem.
4. STICK TO TRAILS
Summit has thousands of miles of trails to explore. By sticking to the trails and camping at least 200 feet from lakes, rivers and streams, you’re helping to avoid damage to plants and the erosion of trails.
5. Be careful with fire
Wind and low humidity here in Summit mean fires can get out of hand quickly. Be sure to check local fire restrictions before lighting a fire, and make sure its completely extinguished before you leave. Be careful with cigarettes and take butts with you.
5. KEEP WILDLIFE WILD
Observe wildlife from a safe distance and DO NOT FEED. Lining up the perfect Instagram shot can get you charged by an angry moose if you are not careful.
