One of the main things Beaver Lake is known for its world-class striper fishing.
Not to mention the clear water for the scuba driver to enjoy because of the excellent underwater visibility. Rentals are available in nearby Rogers and at Lost Bridge Marina.
The winter months feature another popular activity—eagle watching! Each winter, hundreds of bald eagles migrate to the lake from the northern states. You can book special barge tours to view these magnificent birds!
We live at a slower pace here on Beaver Lake. We breathe clean air and drink clean water. We have a mild four-season climate and some of the finest scenery in the country.
You must experience the natural wonders of our area for yourself. Stand on a mountaintop and take a deep breath of fresh air; look out over miles of green forests, blue lakes, and free flowing streams.
The sunrises and sunsets over Beaver Lake are spectacular all year round with well-defined seasons providing an ever-changing backdrop for your stay.
