  • Everyone enjoyed the hayrides at Silver Lake Regional Park.
  • The Silver Trading Post, at Silver Lake Regional Park, is our newest summer camp location. Campers experienced the challenges and rewards of life in the great outdoors!
Silver Lake Regional Park is 230 acres of pristine beauty in Haymarket, VA. Once a family summer campground filled with RVs and mobile camp units, the land was proffered in 2006 by the Toll brothers to Prince William County and designated for recreational use, first opening in October 2009.
 
Working side-by-side with community partners (Bull Run Mountain Conservancy, Prince William Trails & Streams Coalition, Nokesville Horse Society, Prince William Conservation Alliance and the Board of County Supervisors) the land was restored to its natural state of rolling meadows and forest.  The restoration effort was awarded the 2009 “Best New Special Event Award - National Public Lands Day at Silver Lake” from the Virginia Recreation & Park Society.
