Silver Beach Provincial Park

 

Campers who wish to appreciate the Shuswap Lake from a quieter, less crowded location, choose to head to Silver Beach Provincial Park located at the north end of the Seymour Arm of Shuswap Lake. Visitors who have the stamina to navigate 83 km of road leading to this park (the last 42 km are on gravel) will be treated to a very rewarding camping experience. It is also possible to reach this park by a houseboat or by a ferry from Sicamous to Seymour Arm. 35 vehicle-accessible campsites are located in a mixed forest of Douglas fir and aspen on the shore of the lake. Excellent swimming can be enjoyed from a sandy beach at this campground; paddling, boating, waterskiing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and fishing are also popular on the lake. Visitors to this park can also explore the remains of Ogden, a mining town that thrived during the Gold Rush period. Gas and groceries are available locally.
