Put your swimsuits on and head out to Beaver Lake.
Relax at Beaver Lake Dam Site Park.
Pack a picnic and watch the kids play in the swimming area as you enjoy a few cold ones. The park has designated swimming and is protected from boats and jet skis. There are restrooms on site, shaded picnic tables and grills for day use. A volleyball court and 180 degree uninterrupted views of the lake are pretty cool too.
