One of the closest—and a choice spot—is just around the corner from the Inn: Silver Lake State Park. This crystal clear lake covers 84 acres and fairly shallow at 32-feet. Prominent species include largemouth bass, northern pike, sunfish and yellow perch. There’s a boat dock, and nice shore access.
