Silver Lake

Rent a Kayak or motor boat from Silver Lake Resort and enjoy this large, beautiful Lake. There is also a Recreation Area where you can park, this is a good spot to launch a paddle board, kayak or float tube.  There is also a Forest Service boat launch area where you can launch your own boat.   There have been many photos taken here, and it is understandable as to why once you see its beauty from shore or boat.  This is a hot spot for fishing, so if you are cruising on your kayak or paddle board be mindful of sharing the space with fishing lines.
