During the winter season campground remains open with no snow plow or other services.
Silver Lake Campground adjoins the Bucks Lake Wilderness Area with 9 shady, quiet units for tent camping. The campground also has trailhead parking for both Gold Lake / Granite Gap trails. It is located off Bucks Lake Rd, 16 miles west of Quincy.
Excellent location for lake and swimming hole access. Kirkwood right down the road provides groceries as needed
there is good fishing' at silver lake, but the highlight of camping here is the potholes.The river carved some unusual holes in the granite. great escape from the heat
Once again we found ourselves on the weekend of our road trip and because we didn't have a plan of where exactly we would be on a certain day- we failed to stay in Lake Tahoe. However- this place was only 50 minutes away! It was perfectly quiet and private- tons of trees for hamocking and even had a nice lake across the street! We very much enjoied our time at this campsite and in Tahoe!
