Silver Bowl Campground


season:  June-Oct (snow Oct-May)

elevation: 6500'

cost: $10 per night for a campsite (in 2008)


current weather

The campground is set in a forested bowl close to beautiful Silver Lake.

There is hand pump water, and pit toilets.  18 campsites, but some have been abandoned (in 2008).

Silver Lake is a hidden gem.  The sign for the turnoff for Silver Lake Road from the paved highway seems to disappear on occasion.  Be assured that the land around the lake is public National Forest land, and the summer cabins are by permit with the Forest Service.
