Silver Overflow Campground

Area Status: Closed

The Silver Overflow Campground has space for 52 trailers and is perfect for RV groups as the distribution of camping is centralized, not in individual camping spurs. Rangers, musicians and many other presenters do Saturday night presentations at the adjacent Silver Amphitheater during summer months. Tables, fire rings, parking spurs, gray water sumps, toilets, showers, central garbage depository, plus interpretive trails. RVs - no length limit.
