Silver Lake Provincial Park

Known for its long, sandy beach and pristine water that shines like silver when the sunlight hits it just right, Silver Lake Provincial Park is located near Perth along highway 7.

The lake was carved out by glaciers and is a great fishing spot for northern pike, smallmouth bass, lake trout, yellow perch, and sunfish. At the eastern end of the lake you’ll find a marsh and boardwalk. Stroll along and spot the local species, including painted turtles, bullfrogs, and a variety of birds such as mallards and red-winged black birds.

There are 148 tent and trailer sites available at Silver Lake, most of which run along a shady bank and are close to the lake. The park store offers canoe, tent, and life jacket rentals. Other park activities include:

  • Boating
  • Camping – 148 sites
  • Canoeing
  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Wildlife viewing
