This beautiful lake is found in the narrow valley of Fitzstubbs Creek, backed by the 2300 m peaks of the Nakusp Range. It is popular with family groups, as it offers something for everyone. The level sites beneath trees are suitable for tents, campers or trailers. Long weekends find folks coming from far and wide to gather for reunions, do some fishing for Kokanee and rainbow trout, swim, bike ride, play bocce and horseshoes. For those who want to get away from the crowds, a small hidden lake joined to Beaver Lake by a narrow stream, is accessible by canoe. Canoeists will also find the inlet and outlet stream interesting. Mountain biking on the Wilson Creek Forest Service Road is popular. Keep your eye open for wildlife coming down to the creek for water. Boating restriction: electric motors only. 8 campsites and a boat launch.
