  • Silver lake is an awesome place to go for a day trip, an overnight camp trip, or even for just a quick dip! The campsites are very nice, and you can find many trails that lead down to the lake. Silver lake has a half basketball court, a nice playground, and a concrete dock that you can jump off of, and not to mention a beautiful lake with awesome views! The bathrooms are clean, an added plus! I fully recommend going Silver lake for some summer fun!
  • Nice place for weekend getaway! Enjoyed kayaking there, no annoying big boats. Camping site is nice. Spaced out nicely.
  • Very nice campground .Great place to swim. Great sandwiches at the barnard store down the street.
  • Small but nice park, beautiful lake with a nice playground and a small beach. Campsites are close together but not on top of each other, and the campsites each have a fair number of trees. Bathrooms were ok, and the pay showers were pretty nice.
  • I go here every year for a motorcycle camp out. Beautiful setting, and very clean campsites. However, if you want to sleep in a tent, it can be a challenge now as they put crushed stone on every plot. There are some lean to buildings available, but not every site has those.
