Beaver Creek Park is the perfect place to spend a day, evening, or weekend any time of the year. Winter brings a beautiful blanket of snow for us to go cross country skiing and snowshoeing, while Spring's beauty gradually presents itself through blooming wildflowers on the hillsides. During the Summer months the park is it's busiest with people camping, hiking, fishing and enjoying the outdoors. As Autumn arrives, the vegetation is at it's finest as the mountains are painted red, orange, and yellow- it's the perfect time to take your camera into the outdoors. Anyone who visits the park is sure to not be dissapointed. There is something for everyone. Beaver Creek Park is a beautiful oasis in North Central Montana. May I remind visitors to respect the outdoors and be responsible for their actions while enjoying these mountains & streams so that it may be enjoyed by future generations.
Beaver Creek Park is part of a unique area in North Central Montana, (Plains country) the Bear Paw Mountains. The Park is a 10,000 acre strip along the north slopes of the Bear Paw Mountains, about one mile wide by seventeen miles long, and it is the largest county park in the Nation. Within this natural recreation area are rolling grasslands, pine woods, aspen and cottonwood groves, rocky cliffs and cold rushing streams. The vegetation rangers from Box Elder, Alder, Willow and Buffalo Berry on the north end to Cool leafy Cottonwood, Aspen, Ponderosa Pine, Lodge Pole Pine and Douglas Fir on the south end.
Beaver Creek, Bear Paw Lake and Lower Beaver Creek Lake are well stocked with Rainbow and Brook Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass and Perch,. The park abounds with wildlife. Among the many animals you may see are whitetail and mule deer, bobcat, beaver, coyote, fox, mink, pheasants, grouse, golden eagles and hawks.
Plant and bird species from the Rocky Mountains merge here with those of the Plains providing an excellent area for biological studies. Geologic formations range from glacial deposits at the northern end through volcanic strata and dikes, to metamorphic and sedimentary rocks in which fossils can be found.
Our secret winter wonderland! We've come here for cross country skiing, motored around on the sleds, and even tried ice fishing on the two lakes. A beautiful place with evergreen woods, aspen groves, and we always see some wildlife—deer, coyote, mink, eagle (haven't spotted a bobcat yet, but we know they're there.)
