Drop some Silver Lake Campground knowledge on us.
You can't swim a Silver Lake (it's a reservoir) But its open to boating (paddle) and fishing. Amazing swimmable lakes are just a quick hike away in the bucks lake wilderness (trail right out of campground).
Had a great time there a few years back. we parked at silver lake and camped the night, then hiked into gold lake and camped there for a few more nights! it was awesome! if i remember correctly you cant swim at silver lake but you can do whatever you want at gold lake. its quite a hike for only 2 miles so make sure your up for it.
New bear boxes for proper food storage. Tent camping here is just awesome. No swimming, as this is a residential water supply for the mountain community below. Warning: this camp is built adjacent to a rock dam. Dirt road access to the camp, small sign at turn off; Summer weekend w/ just a few people. Best hiking trails into Bucks Lake Wilderness. Mini Gold Lake (2 mile hike) & PCT access.
