Silent Lake

Car Camping

Silent Lake’s two campgrounds, Pincer Bay and Granite Ridge, are located in forested settings.

Granite Ridge Campground offers a small number of electrical campsites. These sites are reservable and fill up quickly.

For those who want to camp with friends or extended family, Silent Lake has a number of double campsites. Two campsites share one driveway and one firepit. These double campsites can occupy up to twelve people and must be reserved together.

In the winter, Silent Lake offers car accessible, plowed, electric campsites on a first-come, first-served basis.

Walk-In Camping

Silent Lake offers a semi-wilderness experience with walk-in campsites. Silent Lake has two loops of walk-in sites in the Pincer Bay Campground (Sites #66-73 and #74–88) as well as one loop of walk-ins in Granite Ridge Campground (Sites #156-167). For all walk-in sites, campers park their vehicles in the designated walk-in parking lots and walk their gear a short distance in to the campsite.  The walk to your site will be no longer than 500 m.
