Silver Lake is a pretty 12-acre body of water located within spitting distance of the Atlantic Ocean in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 6 E5; note that the lake is shown on the map but is not specifically named). To reach this location, drive on Route 209 from Bath and pass Popham Beach State Park. The pond will appear within about half a mile from the entrance of the park. Just before reaching the southern tip of the pond, turn right on Hunnewell Avenue, which is a gravel road that splits off from Route 209. Drive 200-300 ft. on this road and leave your vehicle on the side. The access point will be to your left. Keep in mind that parking space is limited to a handful of vehicles (note: no parking is available or allowed on Route 209) and may also be a problem after a snowstorm when the road has been plowed and the narrow shoulder is filled with snow.
