Silver Lake East is located just 50 miles east of Jackson, California, just a short distance from the shores of Silver lake, where activities like boating, fishing, swimming and hiking, provide campers with the perfect outdoors retreat. 

Numerous trails leaving the campground connect with the lake and swimming beaches. Silver Lake West is adjacent to Silver Lake East on the other side of Highway 88, and offers additional trails and access to the Silver Fork of the American River.

The campground is situated at the base of Carson Peak at an elevation of 7,200 feet, on the north end of beautiful Silver Lake. 

Facilities at this campground include vault toilets, drinking water, campfire rings and picnic tables. Some sites have bear-proof food storage containers as well. 

Single units are limited to a maximum of 2 vehicles and 6 people. A pay phone, restaurant, boat rentals and boat ramp are located at a nearby lodge.

If those rules don’t fit your free-roaming style, take heart: There are plenty of other places to camp and hike with your best four-legged friend.
