This lake has a great beach for swimming with my kids. I took them there one random Friday morning. We went back the following Friday and the following Friday. That's how much fun we had. The water is cool and clear, and the beach is perfectly situated so the wind did not blow us away. There were lifegaurds on duty,... More

Seemed like a good idea, reads like Silverwood has everything we like. First, the hookup sites are short, very short. Can't see any physical reason why they can be a couple of feet deeper. Camp grounds are well maintained, and you do see regular patrols. We enjoyed exploring around, seeing some wildlife and biking the trails. Rangers are friendly, at... More

As any parent would do, I had her shower after a long day at the lake. After the shower I realized she had little bumps all over her legs and torso. I have her benadryl... More

The water at the lake is cold and wet! THe trees are too tall. I don't like the bald eagles flying over and scaring away my fish. The blue sky is to bright and the Staff are too friendly. Stay away. I will suffer for you. If you come to the lake, don't wake me. I am the guy sitting... More

My husband and I go fishing often here in spring and fall, mostly for striped bass, but large mouth and trout too. Last spring we each caught a bass at the same time. One of them was just barely {about 1/4 inch} undersize so my husband tossed it back....or so he thought. He tossed back the wrong one. The game... More

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.
