  • I love this provincial park. Not too busy. Had nice beaches and canoe and kayak rental. Nice trails for hiking. Yurt for rental. Very nice staff. Comfort station is clean. But it got a very small park store. If you missed anything, you may have to leave the park to get them.
  • Very clean provincial park. Great in the summer with lots of shade and perfect water in the lake.
  • Always love Silent lake. Quiet nice beach. But lately the camp ground need some better maintenance crew to get ready between campers checking into the site.
  • Absolutely amazing park. Staff was super friendly and helpful.
  • Came here for winter Yurt Camping with a group of 4 and we had a great time. The park is beautiful and the yurt locations are great, secluded and very quiet. I found the mattresses really uncomfortable, only real complaint. And also they say you can do 6 people to a yurt, but with all your gear space is at a premium maybe 4 + 2 kids but no way 6 adults. Some things to keep in mind. They provide you with all the firewood you need to heat the yurt. But be prepared to be up 3-4 times a nigh to keep the fire going... If you're not up for that don't bother going. Water is available at the comfort station.. a short car ride. And they provide you with small sleds to drag your stuff from the car to your yurt.. the furthest ones are a good 500m or so. The cross country trails are not for novices, but our friends loved them and the snow shoe trail is a a really nice hike.
