This campground is more
suited for tenting. There are 8 nicely treed walk-in tent sites along with 3 RV
sites that are located next to the highway. Beaver Dam campground has dry
toilets, refuse containers, firewood, community camp kitchen, small dock and
boat launch. There
is no water supply here other than the lake and creek.
The lake has been created by a man
made dam on Shunda Creek. The dam
is located at the east end of the
lake. In early spring I did see a
few small rainbow trout cruising
around the shore near the lakes east end
dam. Good fishing can also be found
downstream amongst all the local
dams, you'll need a
to try out your luck. On a hot day
day the lake is good for swimming or
canoeing. I was told that
picking is good here however I saw very few the 1st week of June. If you need a
break from driving, this campground is a nice place to picnic. There are a few
picnic tables located next to the lake. Night
skies here rate #2 on the
official web site for fee's, opening
and closing dates.
You are in bear country.
