Swim Beach Closure


Earlier this week, many swim beaches at Beaver Lake were closed due to high E. coli levels and submerged debris. Several beaches have re-opened - please see below:


Horseshoe Bend Campground ** (campground guests only)
Indian Creek
Lost Bridge North
Prairie Creek
Rocky Branch Day Use Area


Dam Site Lake Campground
Dam Site Lake Day Use Area
Rocky Branch Campground
War Eagle
Hickory Creek
Horseshoe Bend Day Use
Lost Bridge South

Swim areas will re-open after USACE receives follow on testing that shows the water is safe and water levels have receded enough to allow for the cleaning of debris from the beach areas. Both of these steps ensure the safety of our guests and staff.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.

For more information, please contact the Beaver Lake Project Office at 479-636-1210.
