Description

The Silver Mines Campground sits on historic mining land along the banks of the St. Francis River. Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular, especially in the spring. An annual kayaking competition is held on the river on the third week of March (depending on water levels), so come cheer on the athletes! Swimming, fishing, and hiking are also popular. Check out Silver Mines Trail, a short two-mile hike where you can explore the Precambrian granite and felsite rocks of the region. Oh, and there's some jaw dropping views to boot!

Stayed here 10-5-2016. Nice place, quiet, friendly host. Our cell service was not the best, verizon.

I have camped here a few times with family as my father-in-law enjoys kayaking the St. Francis River. The water runs right next to the camp so this campground is perfect for kayaking, fishing, or just playing in the water. There is also a hiking trail with great overlooks that follows the path of the river. Keep an eye out for snakes; I once found a copperhead in the Ladies' restroom! Overall, this is a great campground.
