Nestled alongside Big Silver Creek, Big Silver Group Campground is a perfect place to escape into the wild. A lack of electricity might keep some away, but for those looking for a true camping experience, Big Silver is tops. Tents, trailers, and RVs are welcome. Picnic tables, vault toilets, and grills are throughout the site. Bring your bike to explore the bike trail nearby; this is one of those places where you'll rack up exercise without even realizing it. Big Silver is a BYOW (Bring Your Own Water) but if you start to get antsy, rest assured: within 10 miles, you can find a convenience store with a restaurant, gas, and phone.

Great group site. Several sites all together & a handful nestled in with lots of privacy. Great access to the water & convenient facilities. No running water for cooking/drinking.
