Since 1921, Stockton's Silver Camp has hosted Campers escaping the heat and bustle of the city for fresh air and a more peaceful setting. This historic Camp is located a half mile from Silver Lake in Amador County, which is nestled at the foot of Thunder Mountain in the majestic High Sierras. It is 100 miles east of Stockton on Highway 88 at an elevation of 7,300 feet, and is less than an hour from Lake Tahoe.
Stockton Silver Lake Camp is located on land that is leased by the City of Stockton from the United States Forest Service. The Silver Lake Campers Association now operates the camp with the understanding that Forest Service regulations will not be violated.
