Henschke Hillside Lake Access is located on the east shore of Silver Lake. The property was partly donated by the late Roland Henschke in 1999 with the intent that it be used to develop public boat access to Silver Lake.

The property on Peters Drive opposite the launch was developed to accommodate parking and restrooms.

State and Federal grants were used to aid in the acquisition and development of the property so that the public could benefit from boat access to this beautiful lake.

Launch Amenities:
• Lighted Parking Lot
• Five vehicle-trailer parking spaces,
• (1) additional handicapped vehicle-trailer parking space
