Recreational Activities

Bayside Park/Marina
The most picturesque park along the North Shore features marina facilities, a boat landing, picnic tables, fire pits, a scenic vista, and a beach. All located on the shore of Lake Superior.

Black Beach Park & Campground
The City of Silver Bay and the MN DNR, entered into a Lease Agreement with Northshore Mining for 31.6 acres of property along Lake Superior’s North Shore for the purpose of public beaches. The beaches have quickly become a “hotspot” for tourists traveling the North Shore.

The 49-site Black Beach Campground construction started the spring of 2019.  The campground opened June 25, 2020. It has 15-sites with 20/30-amp electricity, and 34-sites with 20/30/50-amp electric services and full water and sewer hookups.  Unique to campgrounds on the North Shore, this has a few pull-through sites to accommodate the larger RV’s.  The 15 electric only sites fit up to 35′ and the 34 full hook-up sites fit up to 75′.

Baseball & Softball Fields
Silver Bay has active baseball and softball programs including a summer league.  Summer programs include T-ball, peewee, little league, Jr. league baseball and adult/girls softball programs.  All of the games are played on several well-maintained fields.
