  • Such a peaceful lake with nothing but wildlife and trees. It's not cluttered with homes or businesses. Only a marina and a few campsites.
  • Absolutely favorite place to explore around Raleigh. Love dropping my kayak around Beaverdam. Still finding trails to explore with my dogs. They love it too :)
  • You want stunning beauty, peaceful surrounding? Great place for lake fun, grilling and family time. Hopefully I will get to camp here!!!
  • A great lake and park. Tons of places to hike, boat, fish and just hang-out. We like to park around the Dam and hike up and over. Also nice walking trails all around.
  • Great place to camp. Good facilities with showers. The beach is nice and a good place to swim.
