Silver Lake Park
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Beautiful little mountain lake with reasonably-priced canoe and paddle boat rentals for day trippers. Nice campground as well, and good fishing if you have gear & a license. If you're in the Mt. Baker area in summer and looking for a break from hiking or off-road adventures, this is a nice, close-by option. Lovely place.

Room Tip: This is not a hotel...should go under attractions in Maple Falls or Mt. Baker National Forest!

A nice and well kept Whatcom County campground located just south of the Canadian border. About 3 to 4 minutes by car off of Mt.Baker highway. A good many nicely maintained campgrounds nestled among Douglass Firs, Spruce, and Cedars, crows and jays squawk around overhead, they have a picturesque lake, a children's playground area, soaring hawks and eagles overhead, roaming ducks and geese, a public boat dock, canoe, rowboat, and paddle boat low cost public rentals, fire pits for barbecuing, pay showers available, large and expansive yard area for frisbee and playing catch and games etc, there are quite a few good opportunities for photo taking as well, try the bridge walkway over the lake inlet.

There are 6 small "rustic" cabins and 1 Overnight Lodge overlooking Silver Lake. These used to be privately owned as part of a fishing resort here, and so were "fishing cabins." The Whatcom County Parks Dept. took over the resort and made improvements to the cabins, such as adding electricity, running water (now including hot), gas for the stoves and heaters, vinyl flooring, mouse proofing (to the extent that it's possible to mouse proof!), etc. But still there are no toilets in the cabins, just partially heated enhanced outhouses, and a few minutes walk away there is a heated bath house with flush toilets, sinks, and hot showers.

Cleanliness is what you would expect with this type of accommodation. My ratings of 2/5 for cleanliness and 3/5 for rooms are based on comparison to standard hotel and cabin accommodation. But if you are OK with rustic, then these cabins are great.

Some cabins are very small, just 1 room. Some cabins have 2 rooms and some have stone fireplaces. You must bring bedding and cooking utensils.

Service rating is low because staff are not always available. I never even met them.
But there was not much need anyway. Things worked well for the most part. There is an emergency contact available. Booking is only by phone or in person.

The location is excellent, and is very peaceful. I will go back.

Check the Whatcom County Parks Dept. website for info and photos.

This was wonderful. We had cabin six. Had some fishing, rowing, hiking and great scenery. The everyday hassles of life were like another universe. Every thing was so beautiful. We had expected to be able to barbeque/ cookfire, but other than that it was excellent. There was a full kitchen in exchange.

I visited Mount Baker Recreation Area, camped at Silver Lake Park ... and generally soaked up the natural beauty of the area. It's really a beautiful place with hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking and mountain biking options.
