The master plan for Beaver Lake is the guidance document that describes how the resources of the lake will be managed in the future and provides the vision for how the lake should look in the future.

The shoreline management plan for Beaver Lake establishes policy and furnishes guidelines for the protection and preservation of the desirable environmental characteristics of the shoreline while maintaining a balance between public and private shoreline use.
