  • Tired of the city and motors. You can sail or paddle at Beaver Dam Lake away from gas powered boats. Easy access to put your canoe, kayak or electric motor boat in the lake. Plenty of places to fish. ...  more »
  • I am tempted not to write this review to keep it more our secret hideaway. We love Falls Lake and all it has to offer. We really enjoy camping and can even pull the boat up to the camp site.  more »

  • Great area with decent facilities. Camped at Overlook, lots of gravel and picnic tables. Had one very large grill and one smaller one. Came with a large fire pit (bring your own wood) with a grill that can be set over it. The grill for the pit and the smaller grill were both rusty however. The are was very well graveled, struggled though to find good flat places just outside the gravel to set tents. Very thankful for the bathrooms, no mirrors though.
  • Beautiful lake with plenty of space to fish, go boating, jet skiing, etc. Some nice picnic areas open to anyone and the forest is clear so it's easy to traverse through. Hiking trails are nice, but there's not many of them. Plus, theres a bunch of great cedars. The recreation area has a nice pier to walk to as well.
  • Great views. Always clean. Family friendly
  • I mountain biked the inner and west loop and had a blast. Definitely looking forward to coming back and tackling the south loop. I also spent a few hours enjoying the scenery by the water. Would absolutely recommend visiting the park!
  • Great facilities! Very impressed with the picnic shelters! The swimming area is kept clean.
