  • Tent camping, yurt camping, just hiking, all so so fun. I went yurt camping in February when the lake was frozen solid and was able to walk out on the ice during the night and gaze up at the stars. It was such a good trip! Also yurt camping gives unlimited wood supply!
  • Beautiful spot to canoe. Small lake so you can easily see the whole thing in one go. Even though we got skunked we had a great time
  • The new cabins are a great way to get out to the parks in the winter. Clean and quiet, and close to the excellent new comfort stations. Probably much less private in the summer, since they are right beside the day use area.
  • We visited on a winter weekend and had an amazing time. Unfortunately mother nature didn't cooperate and we were unable to ski, but we had a great time hiking. Silent lake is a beautiful park and I can't wait to return (hopefully to camp).
  • love this park... it is in an extremely hilly area tho, so it's not for the faint if heart. serious enthusiasts are best for this park in regard to the trails
