Silverwood Lake Camping

Silverwood Lake is a State Recreation Area. A park fee of $10 is collected upon entrance to the area. The only family campground at Silverwood is Mesa Campground. There are also several group sites.

Boats on Trailers - Those staying overnight with a boat on a trailer need to make a Boat Launch Reservation so that you will be assigned a campsite where you can park your boat on its trailer overnight. Jet Skis carried in the back of a pick-up truck do not need a boat launch reservation.

RVs and Trailers - According to the Park Brochure, RVs are limited to 30 feet and trailers to 24 feet. However, the California State Recreation Area website says 32 feet and 31 feet.
