The lake was carved out by glaciers and is a great fishing spot for northern pike, smallmouth bass, lake trout, yellow perch, and sunfish. At the eastern end of the lake you’ll find a marsh and boardwalk. Stroll along and spot the local species, including painted turtles, bullfrogs, and a variety of birds such as mallards and red-winged black birds.
There are 148 tent and trailer sites available at Silver Lake, most of which run along a shady bank and are close to the lake. The park store offers canoe, tent, and life jacket rentals. Other park activities include:
- Camping – 148 sites
