This area is Open

Silver Creek Campground is located in a scenic fir and pine forest on the mountainside just above Noble Creek at an elevation of 6,800 feet. Popular activities include fishing nearby creeks and the East Fork Carson River, and hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail, which can be accessed just 3 miles west of the site.

This campground straddles Highway 4, creating two separate loops containing several single-family sites with picnic tables, fire rings with grills, and bear boxes. Vault toilets, potable water, and garbage service are provided. A campground host is located on-site; firewood is available for purchase. Roads and parking spurs are paved.
