“Dirty Dirty--West Nile Central”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

...and loaded with bugs. You'll get bitten to death without Deet on your skin. Can only really use the lake if you're a property owner because most access points are through private property. Maybe there are two places around the entire lake that you can use. And the water is green to brown in color.

“Serene......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

A very lovely spot to watch the water, see beautiful homes and in the colder months observe the geese, ducks and other water fowl.

“Just a Man Made Lake...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

with million dollar properties that most of us could never afford :(...I wouldn't consider this a tourist attraction...just something you drive by and say "oh look what a nice little lake".

“Unique lake close to the ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

As you enter Rehoboth from the south, you immediately get a view across Silver Lake and into Rehoboth's tree-lined, traditional neighborhoods. It really sets the tone for a visit to this town, setting it apart from Dewey Beach, Ocean City and other tacky, more commercialized beach towns. Silver Lake stretches from almost the ocean dunes back through town to a small wetland area. Unfortunately, it's not clean enough to swim, and few people boat it (access is limited). But the lake serves largely as a visual amenity, offering a tree-lined lake view to Rehoboth's beach-oriented atmosphere.
