    When were these pictures taken? I heard that site 1-13 is not as shady because of the 203 fire. Thank you.

  2. Gilbert Scholtz says:

    Is camping with a tent allowed on the camp grounds OR are there designated campgrounds for the use of a tent.
    Thanks

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Gilbert,

      Tent camping is allowed at Silverwood Lake State Recreation area campground.

  3. Joshua says:

    Does anyone know how soon group campsites are available at Silverwood. I’m trying to book something for next summer but it’s only allowing me to book out to March.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Joshua,
      For Silverwood Lake Campground reservations are available on the first day of the month, six months prior to arrival. For example, if you wanted to stay sometime in July, then the reservation window opens on January 1 at 8:00AM PST.

  4. DOUGLAS J KNUDSON says:

    Boat Rentals and Kayak rentals how much? How close are full hook up sites to the lake? Curious.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Douglas,
      CampsitePhotos doesn’t have that info. I recommend you call the Marina at Silverwood Lake: 760-389-2299

  5. Cass says:

    Hi there,
    I prepaid for my reservation online, and wanted to find out how check-in works? Is there a cut-off time? We’re coming up from San Diego after work, and expect to get in around 7-8pm on Friday.
    Thanks!

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Cass,
      CampsitePhotos.com is not associated with the campgrounds listed on our site. We provide the campsite photos and some campground information. Generally check-in is 2PM and you have until 6AM the day after you’re suppose to arrive to be in the site so you should be fine. However, I’d call the campground directly to confirm: 760 389-2281

  6. Damaris Torres says:

    Are there showers? To take a shower after swimming in the lake.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Damaris,
      Yes, there are showers (coin operated) at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area.

  7. Yolanda ramis says:

    Hello when you say coin operated for the showers. Can you tell me how much it is for the showers

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Yolana,

      Unfortunately the crew here at CampsitePhotos.com doesn’t know how much the showers cost at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area. In other campgrounds the showers generally cost $1 (4 quarters or tokens) for 2-3 minutes.

  8. Debi Dossey says:

    Can we put a tent and trailer (EWS) on the same site, if it is large enough?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Debi,
      That depends on the campsite. Did you look at the photo of the campsite you have at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area?

  9. jennifer elizarraraz says:

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Jennifer,

      The three group campsites at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area have tables, BBQ, large fire ring and shade ramada, but no electric hookups. The can accommodate up to 100 people and 30 vehicles.

  10. Anthony M Sarmiento says:

    Is there areas to ride ATV’s

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Anthony,
      There are a few fire-roads/forest service roads that are within a mile of Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area and you can ride ATVs on these roads.

  11. Barbara Crawford says:

    Hi Camp Ranger

    Do you ever see any bears or bobcats? Is there any restrictions for food at night because of wild animals?
    Thank you

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Barbara,
      There are bears and bobcats in the general area of Silverwood Lake State Recreation area, but they are rarely seen. It’s always a good idea to store food properly though as there are other critters about that will take advantage of a midnight snack if left laying around.
