Silver Lake East Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Silver Lake is a great place to bring a family. With resorts and another big campground nearby, there are always enough kids running around to entertain your own. The lake is a short walk away, where the kids congregate on the shore, and back at the campground the big boulders under the red firs draw youths like bees to honey. While the kids are off playing their own games, you can sit around and take it easy. It’s prime camping.

Fishing Silver Lake is good fun, as the lake is not as heavily fished as nearby Lower Bear River Reservoir or Caples Lake. While some are fishing, others can go hiking. A great hike is up to Shealor Lake. It’s about 3 miles round-trip and perfect for a day hike, incorporating lunch and a dip."
