Not Your Parents’ Camping Experience at Silver Lake Resort and Campground

Silver Lake Resort and Campground is full of top-notch amenities. Camping with all the comforts of home–yes please!

If you don’t have a camper, you can stay in one of their furnished cabins. And if you do have a camper or a tent, you’ll be amazed with all the extras.

Just to give you a brief overview of the type of experience you’ll get at this top-rated campground, here are just some of amenities you’ll find:

  • A heated pool and a recently updated playground
  • A pond where you can catch and release fish
  • A camp store that looks more like the aisles of your local big-name grocer
  • An extremely clean bathroom facility (more like a hotel than a campground!)
  • A beach volleyball court and horse shoes

Over the Dunes and Through the Sand to Silver Lake You’ll Go!

In addition to a stay at the campground, you’ll also go for thrilling dune ride with Mac Wood’s Dune Rides. Mac Wood’s Dune Rides has been in the business of giving us all a good rush of adrenaline since 1930.

The 40 minute ride will take you over 7 miles of the picturesque Silver Lake Dunes. It’s sure to be a ride you’ll remember for a lifetime! There’s no better way to see the dunes, have some fun, and learn a little while you’re at it.
