Silver Lake Recreation Area


Silver Lake Recreation Area is the largest recreation area in the Apalachicola National Forest, with large pines and moss-draped Cypress trees creating a beautiful backdrop for the spring-fed lake. Notice a sign by one of the picnic pavilions identifying this as one of the many fine Civilian Conservation Corps projects completed in Florida. This is the only remaining CCC structure on the Byway. Activities include swimming, hiking, fishing, and picnicking. Facilities include 50 picnic tables, 3 picnic shelters, 250-foot white sand beach, mile-long interpretive trail, restrooms, and hot showers.
