There is a 2-wheel-drive accessible, single wide, gravel boat launch for small boats located near the day-use and campground areas. There is a parking area for vehicles and boat trailers; however, no overnight parking is available. Boats can be left in the water or beached overnight at owners own risk. 10hp motor limit for Silver Lake. There are no docks or marina. Water skiing is not recommended.
Campfires are permitted in the campground fire rings only. While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act ). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
There is only one short, 1km trail, which follows the west side of lake down an old road bed.
There is lake swimming available; however, there is no roped-off area. There are no wharfs or docks available. Drop-offs occur. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.

While Silver Lake is not included in the park boundaries, it provides excellent trout fishing opportunities. Catch and release only, single barbless hook, 10Hp motor limit for Silver Lake. Licences are available for purchase in Hope/Silver Hope Creek approximately 8 km away. Ice fishing is not recommended. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Silver Lake Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
