4 Reviews of Silverwood Lake State Rec Area
One of the worst Campgrounds we have stayed in

Expensive trashy sites, fire pits were too full of ashes to use, garbage literally everywhere, bathrooms were gross despite park personnel going in and out of them all day. Staff seemed to be pretty indifferent when I called to report that a kid was shooting a BB gun across my campsite. I had to drive away from my site for safety. We will never stay there again. (To be fair the superintendent of Silverwood did apologize, made a lot of excuses, but did refund our money despite having a no-refund policy)

Water, shade swimming and fishing

Bring money. Everything cost extra

Quick Trip with family

We reserved 2 sites next to each other for 1 night. It was a very quick trip. We had very nice camping spots with adequate hookups. Nice and shaded. It appears they are building a new facility of some sort but, it was not yet finished when we were there. Still a little too cold to get into the water, but others were swimming at the beach area and in spite of the wind, it was a good trip. The lanes are rather small and the campsites we were in did not accommodate a vehicle and a trailer which means your parking in the lane and this makes for some congestion. Especially, if your neighbors have 2 vehicles and a boat they want to park by their rig.

First to Review
Beautiful lake, nice campsites, lax rule enforcement

Stayed a couple nights here. The staff are all really nice and the campsites were very clean. Flush toilets and hot showers are available for 4 quarvters for every two minutes. Full hookups are available in one campsite for 55 a night. Parking is very limited. At the full hookup campsites you have two small spots, and one spot at the tent camping sites. Also you can't keep your boat and trailer at the marina which still blows my mind. They could make so much money off a nightly fee for parking there. Marina has 4 slips for rent at 15 a night.

Supppsedly your not allowed to have dogs on the beaches, but they were everywhere. I have never seen so many dogs at a lake before. And many off leash with owners oblivious to what they are doing.

15 minute limit for tying off at the boat ramp which is ignored and not enforced. Launching and retrieving boats was a nightmare because of the jet skies that are docked and left there. No one could tie their boats off to get their trailers. We sat for an hour with a group of other boats all waiting for pickup and 5 jet skies were parked there the whole time. Oh and don't forget the people fishing from the launch ramp standing by the no fishing signs.

People ignore the no wake zone and in three days we only saw one boat get called out on it.

Then there's the kids that throw rocks in the water where people are fishing and the jerks on the shore yelling at anyone fishing from a boat in the coves.

It really is a nice lake and campground or would be if the rangers had better rule enforcement in place.
