  • Beautiful park, especially in the winter. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in one of the parks cabins which was very warm and cozy with heated comfort stations just a short walk away. Great opportunities for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
  • Had a great time in the cabin doing winter activities. X country skiing and snow shoeing. Staff very helpful. We bought their poor quality wood and complained and they brought a large load if the good stuff for the yurts. Thank you staff! Cabins were built skookum. Sound proof. Very warm. BBQ w element was great to cook with. Thank you again!
  • Fabulous campground. The electric cabins (200 series) are organized, supplied with necessary resources, and are super comfortable. My friends and I had a really splendid time there on an early December weekend. Also, the park staff are extremely kind and helpful. There are several trails nearby that you can explore, too. As for washrooms, those are located nearby in a public facility.
  • Silent Lake is an amazing Provincial Park. One of it's great features is that they do not allow any motorized craft on the lake. We've already visited this park twice and have enjoyed both visits. The park is clean and so are the amenities.
  • Yurt camping! Had a great experience. It's beautiful here. We had the wood stove yurt...totally fun
