Don't expect a quiet evening relaxing by the fire when you stay at Beaver Lake Co. Campgrounds. Expect to hear the campers barking dogs and most upsetting the host's barking dog. Every evening you will get to hear the host's barking dog. One evening the host's dog barked from 9:00 to 12:30 AM. So much for quiet hours.. Although the... More

A few weeks ago Hubby & I went to Beaver Lake park with the local ALL (Association of Lifelong Learners) group. (another fun thing up here - but for another story). Everyone else had campers, pop up's & such & we old military retirees had this big boxy two room tent. We've had lots of great camp outs in it.... More

Camping, fishing, swimming or just singing and visiting around the campfire. Lovely wooded area with great facilities for camping or stopping by for just a picnic. even a half-court for some great one on one basketball. What more could you ask for in a campground.

We also have a cottage on the lake and vacation there as often as we can. The scenery is beautiful and the lake is perfect!! I'd rather spend my vacation time there more than anywhere else. Within driving distance to both Traverse City and Mackinac as well without an overnight stay and lots of things to do in Alpena! Don't... More

I own a cottage on Beaver Lake... and I hesitate to recommend Beaver Lake because I wish I had this whole beautiful lake to myself! As another review said, Beaver Lake is extremely clean and clear. I kayak around the lake frequently and on calm days it's not uncommon to see down 20 or more feet to view big bass... More

I have been going to Beaver Lake since I was a little girl. It is so clear that you can see the sand on the bottom in the middle of the lake! There are a lot of clams, so kids will have a great time looking for them! The only thing to keep in mind is swimmer's itch season...
