The vibe at Silver Fork Campground
Drop some Silver Fork Campground knowledge on us.
Hi, We went through Silver Fork Campground today, we were on a day trip to fish. So I just wanted to say how sad I was to see how the visitors have treated this campground, they leave their trash and garbage every, it was disgusting, then the park workers are left to clean it up. Honestly what is wrong with campers that they would leave campsites in such disgusting messes. Thank you park workers for cleaning up after these horrible people, you should not have to do that. On a positive note, I had a great chat with the guy planting fish along the creek, very nice fellow and he was really planting some nice fish (not gonna tell you where either). So please everyone, haul out your trash, try to leave your campsite better than you found it
