Silver Lake Park is a state park in the San Juan Mountains. A clear lake surrounded by plenty of hiking trails. The park offers a number of cabins for rental and there is boat access ramp near the main parking lot for lake visitors. While the area closest to the cabins does have picnic tables and grills provided, much of the surrounding area remains pristine.


Tucked away from the main park area, there is a natural island on the water. A favorite spot for boaters, the island is complete with a small cliff face on one side which is popular to jump off or dive into the water from.

Among the trails that work up into the mountains, there are some natural caves on the park grounds as well.
