Renovated entrance area, stayed in very nice electrically serviced site in the Granite Ridge Campground, clean comfort station, cabins and yurts available, hiking trails through mature mixed forest and around Silent Lake.

Great place, large sites. Seems to be getting more and more busy every year we go. They took away floating dock and are doing some major construction everywhere in park.

We came on a Monday and the cross country trails were empty. The trails were groomed and easy to manage. We were blessed to see an owl and a woodpecker. The scenery was magnificent.

If I were asked what part of my camping trip to Silent Lake did I like best, I would come up with quite a few items. For one, the lake itself is beautiful and it is quiet, as no motor boats are allowed up here....More

Silent Lake is found where the Haliburton Highlands meet the Kawartha Highlands and is beautiful - accessible but still natural and rugged. The small-midsize lake is silent because it is surrounded by protected park lands and prohibits any motorized use. The water is clear, there...More

Hi I was wondering if there was anywhere to swim with our dogs, does not have to be a beach area. We are looking to stop off here to break up our drive home to Montreal from Killarney but don't want to have to stay at the campsite the whole time.

One of the designated beaches (if memory serves, it is the one that is furthest from the entrance) has some gently sloping rocks off to one side. It's outside the beach area and I am sure you could swim there with dogs.
Hi, I just read that the floating raft in Silent Lake has been removed. I am hoping that this not true or at least has been replaced. It is one of our favourite things about Silent Lake.
