Silver Lake State Park is one of the smaller North Hampshire State Parks at just 80 acres, yet people are drawn to its beautiful 1000-foot beach that curves its way along the shores of the 34 acres of Silver Lake. Silver Lake provides the opportunity for many recreational activities like boating, fishing, and swimming, and there are places where visitors are able to rent kayaks and paddleboats to make the most of the surroundings.
Silver Lake State Park is only open during the summer months, which is when most people choose to rent an RV in Hillsborough County. Once you have had enough of relaxing on the beach, there are plenty of attractions and towns in the surrounding area which are worth exploring for a day a trip, such as the towns of Amherst, Brookline, and Manchester.
One of the most scenic and accessible walks in Silver Lake State Park is the 825-foot Paul F. Wilderman Boardwalk. By using the boardwalk, you can cross the interesting inland swamp without disturbing it. Although this is one of the most well-trodden trails in the park, there are plenty of others to explore, such as the Blue-Blazed Chatfield Trail. Overall there are over 20 miles of hiking trails that extend out into the surrounding forest, offering a full day out from your RV rental.
Although the lake has no public boat launch, carry-in boats are allowed, such as sailboats, kayaks and other small boats. As boats can’t go over 10 mph, it offers a lovely, relaxing boating environment where you are free to explore the shores and your open water at your own pace. Many people come camping at Silver Lake State Park to enjoy the gentle waters with friends and family.
Silver Lake lures anglers year after year who come in the hope of catching some of the native fish species, such as pickerel, smallmouth bass, horned pout, whitefish, and rainbow trout.
