FORT SILVER GROUNDS
The Fort Silver Grounds area of FSNP is truly an enchanting experience with many beautiful and fun-filled sights. Like the Lake Silver area, this part of the park also features primitive hiking trails and campsites, along with a small campground on top of Silver Peak (the non-active remnant of an ancient volcano that erupted millions of years ago forming Lake Silver). Fort Silver itself is sure to send you back in time, and offers free guided tours inside the fort along with historical artifacts and pieces of silver from more than a century ago, and a horse petting area as well.
