Silverton Marine Park & Reservoir (also known as Silver Creek Reservoir) is located just outside the charming town of Silverton, and 15 minutes from Silver Falls State Park. This small 65-acre reservoir is popular with locals, especially for fishing. For those looking to get out on the water there is a boat ramp and dock here. Please note that no gas motors are allowed on the lake, but electric motors are acceptable. If you're looking to swim, please stay 20 feet away from the boat launch area.

For those looking to enjoy the reservoir from dry land there is an area with picnic tables, as well as a nice fishing pier. Other facilities include restrooms, a water fountain and loaner life vest station. An unmarked hiking trail also begins behind the parking area and can be hiked as it continues for a short distance above and behind the reservoir.

Police frequently make their rounds here, so be sure to purchase the required parking pass ($5) available at the self pay station.
