“Wonderful CG near Lake Alpine”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed in Silvertip CG over the fourth of July holiday period, Friday thru Wednesday. We were in site 15 which is an interior location on the loop. It is a huge site with several fallen trees that extend through the campsite. Water spigot right at the spur so expect to see neighbors. The area is gorgeous. We had hoped to get into a site in West shore that is right next to Lake Alpine but Silvertip proved to be a good location. There is a wonderful 1 mile trail to lake Alpine that comes out by the day use area in the southern section. The lake is a beautiful high mountain setting. Did some kayaking and plenty of hiking, Inspiration point and Duck lake to name a few. Mixed bag on cell, weak at best. Campsites are a mix of small spurs for tent campers and longer spurs for RV’s. I have a 20’ trailer and would have fit into many of the spurs. Older bathrooms with flush toilets. No showers, but they are available for a fee from Lake Alpine resort just up the road. The resort also has a small store but no produce. Had a few nights with some noisy neighbors (music and loud talking) but the camp host was aware of it and made his presence known. After that it was quiet and peaceful.
