Beaver Lake Campground has great rates, family camping and spacious, level, shaded sites to suit any size RV or tent. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings and all tent sites have 10′ X 12′ rain shelters, most are shaded and some even come with electricity. The campground is open from March 15 until November 10, 2019, however, we do take phone reservations all year. For 2019 we are not increasing our rates for Sturgis Rally week.
