Silver Lake Regional Park in Haymarket, VA!

Over the weekend the boys and I visited Silver Lake Regional Park in Haymarket, VA. Silver Lake is 230-acres of natural space that was given to Prince William County in 2006 by the builder Toll Brothers. The park was opened in 2009 and is a very natural park with bank and non-motorized boat fishing, picnic tables by the lake, many hiking and equestrian trails. The park is a “trash free” park meaning you must take trash home with you and no trash receptacles are in the park. The master plan shows the park will be getting a playground in the future but many people in Prince William County are 0pposed and would like park to remain more passive.

Address: 16198 Silver Lake Road, Haymarket, VA

Picnic tables are available right at the waters edge and other shady areas in the park. We had a nice picnic lunch at the waters edge then we headed out onto the hiking trails. Indoor Restrooms are available during the summer months and a porta potty sits outside them during the off months. The hiking trails are both gravel and dirt trails.

The pictures don’t do the park justice. The boys had a great time at the park and we’ll definitely be going there again with friends to hike and geocache!

    There is a second lake on the park property that is fenced off. Why is that lake not available to be enjoyed?

      Hi Mark, I believe they use this secondary area for research and as a hatchery of sort. I was told this a few years ago so I’m not sure if this is still the case.

      Hi Jake,
      If the water slightly shallow it was probably a large catfish. They don’t mind showing some fin if they are going after food.
