Located on the west shore of Beaver Lake, the park's gently rolling prairie provides scenic views for leisurely walks. In the summer, the lake attracts visitors for boating, canoeing, water skiing and fishing.

The park has a colorful and historic background relating to the early settlers of Logan, McIntosh and Emmons counties. The first organized gathering to promote a state park occurred on July 14, 1929, at Shepherd's Pavilion, south of the present park site. In August of 1930, the land for the park was purchased.

Park improvements came slowly during the drought and depression of the 1930s. Beaver Creek was dammed in 1933, raising the level of the lake. In 1935, a Works Progress Administration (WPA) crew was assigned to the park to build roads and pathways, construct an earthen dock, and to terrace the picnic area.

Today, Beaver Lake State Park is operated as a seasonal park, with camping, picnicking and water-based activities available from mid-May through Labor Day.

June 24 Perfect Getaway
This park is beautiful and easy to camp in. For the electrical sites, you just pull through- no backing in and there is plenty of space between campers. It is so quiet and peaceful here that it is the perfect place to relax and go fishing.
October 20 Beautiful scenic campground by Tommy Gemmill
Phesant hunting trip that was made very pleasant by the staff and amenities at Beaver Lake state park. Wonderful shower house facility, beautiful location and a definite return for next year.
