This was our first visit to Silver Lake and I wished we had found it earlier. The sites are spaced nicely and the bathhouses are convenient and clean. The beach is great with a fun dock to jump off of. It is a great lake for kayaking and paddleboarding.
A very scenic place to stay. We will be going back here next year!
I have stayed at Silver Lake State Park for years now.
There is a beach with wading depth, sand for playing, buoys to mark the shallow area, a large dock to jump from with a ladder for climbing out. Located at the beach area is also lawn space for games, a volleyball court, a fantastic playground. There is a bathroom and changing room, ice for sale and a great snackbar. Rowboats, paddleboats, cannoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards are all available for rent during the day and the dock where the boats are stored is a great place to fish from.
In addition to fishing from the dock, there are great picnic spots located off to the side all along the water front with more fishing opportunities. Back by these picnic spots are horseshoe pits, additional bathrooms, and more lawn space to play on.
If you have a large group, they have a great pavillion for day use that has its own water source and horseshoe pits.
Camping is easy and the sites are well spaced. Some are located closer together than others but even if you are there with people you don't know, you never feel like you are on top of each other. The lean-tos all have a great sense of privacy.
Bathrooms are clean, showers are coin-op but so great and the hot water is plentiful.
All in all, I love coming here!
This is a beautiful smaller park. Surrounded by breathtaking mountain-scapes. Facilities are nice and the lake is lovely with some great fishing. You can swim, walk around it or rent a vessel to cruise around in. A good place for a family getaway.
