Silverwood Lake was formed by the 249-foot Cedar Springs Dam.  At 3,350 feet, it is the highest reservoir in the State Water Project.  The park features hiking trails, swimming beaches and designated areas for boating, water-skiing and fishing.  The lake has trout, large mouth bass, catfish and bluegill.  There is a marina with a launching ramp, boat and equipment rentals, and a store.  The park has picnic areas, including three that can only be reached by boat.  The lake attracts waterfowl, raptors and songbirds.  Canada Geese and an occasional bald eagle can be seen in the area.

Pacific Crest Trail
The Pacific Crest Trail is the jewel in the crown of America's scenic trails, spanning 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada through three western states.  The trail passes through five California State Parks:  Castle Crags and McArthur-Burney Falls in Northern California; and Silverwood Lake, Anza Borrego Desert and Mt. San Jacinto in Southern California.

Silverwood Seasonal Closures:

Starting November 1, 2014, the Cleghorn and Sawpit Beach (Lots 1 thru 3) Day Use areas will be closed to the public until March 30, 2015 for the winter season.  The main boat launch parking will be open to the public for park use.  If you have any questions, please call the Silverwood Sector Office.   



 

ATTENTION, ALL BOATERS!!!

All boats, personal watercraft, kayaks, canoes, sailboards, inflatables, and float tubes must undergo a mandatory inspection. This inspection is to prevent the spread of Quagga and Zebra Mussels. This invasive species threatens the recreational opportunities of the general public, the water delivery infrastructure of California, and the aquatic habitat of Silverwood Lake. These inspections are required to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of Silverwood Lake. Failure to allow inspection of any watercraft will result in the refusal to launch.

All boats must be clean, drained, and dry!

If you fail inspection you will not be able to launch for 7 days!
