I went recently to Silverwood lake and what a pleasant experience it was. Peaceful is one way to decribe it as my daughter and I cast out our lines and sat back and relaxed as we waited for a nibble on the line. I always come here and will continue to come here.

Our family, our children live down in Southern CA and we are in the North so vacationing and just getting together is a challenge. We loved our weekend at Silverwood Lake. The campground was very nice and we brought our canoe and they were great no hassle at all as far as inspections. These sites when looking at the map... More

Maybe Miss Suzie O didn't see any rattlesnakes but there are plenty in the desert. How many people are bitten by snakes every day? How many people are killed every day on the wonderful freeways of Southern California that you use to get to the scary snakes in the desert? If you've never seen the High Desert, visit it, take...

They are after the squirrel eggs and rodents. We stayed 6 days and saw 4 of them. They didn't strike. I was told that probably because the snakes... More

Great getaway place/daycation from the city (lol). Went with family and friends on several occasions, and so far no problems (there is no rattlesnakes as one person said, thanks for scaring people). Just make sure to come real early, they open at 8 or 9, you want to have the best spot if your BBQing.
