  • Great little park. The camper fill/dump station is a little in the way for normal traffic. The lake seems pretty quiet. We saw ducks, ducklings, and loons on our early morning canoe trip around the lake. Minimal interaction with the staff, but they were nice and helpful. Rare park with a playground that seemed good as well as boat rentals and docks. Worth the trip.
  • There is an active bear in the camp site. Otherwise whole state park is awesome. Well maintained and beautiful lake with great swimming, kayaking options
  • One of the best lake beaches we have found in the area. $4pp for day use seems a little high, but it's so nice and clean we don't mind supporting.
  • Nice quiet campground. We had a bear visit around 7:30 am. The only negative is the coin shower. Which is to small to keep much dry.
  • Silver Lake is a "go to" for me. Far enough to be getting out of town but not too far, to dread a long drive home. Always clean. Cute little bathhouse. Quick walk from the parking lot to seating and another quick walk to the sandy bottomed beach. Always fun to jump off the cement platform into water that MAY just take your breath away. Don't forget to stop at the General Store less than a mile away. Enjoy! Its what we wait all winter for😎
