Our Family along with another family spent 3 nights in the new cabins in Silent Lake. First thing I can confirm is that the cabins are gorgeous. Well built and able to keep the elements out...perhaps too well! We let the propane heated fireplace run...More

We stopped by to see the fall colours, and were not disappointed. Though a relatively busy park in the summer, it was mostly empty in the fall (as far as we could tell we were the only ones there.) We didn't have time for all...More

Beautiful and clean campground. The girls at the front office were great but one person sticks out even more by the name of Danielle. She was an absolute pleasure to speak with, provided information without us feeling like we should know the answer. Always willing...More

We last visited this park over 25 years ago. It was beautiful then and is even better now. Clean and quiet. The new comfort stations are great.

Came here for a couple nights mid-week with my 11-year old son. The campground overall seems like it draws the more respectful type of camper, didn't hear any loud noise and it got pretty quiet at night fairly early. Stayed at the Pincer section campsite...More

Silent Lake is one of the most picturesque parks. The sites are large and wooded and offer enough privacy to be able to appreciate the peace and quiet in true nature. There are trails everywhere, we found one through the campground to the beautiful beach,...More

A nice 2.5 hour getaway from Toronto. 1) It is more rugged campsite as in more trees and wildlife. We saw a family of deer passing through our campsite (#63) but the raccoons are bolder here. One came back and kept stealing our garbage after...More

One of the designated beaches (if memory serves, it is the one that is furthest from the entrance) has some gently sloping rocks off to one side. It's outside the beach area and I am sure you could swim there with dogs.
