I was looking for a place to stay during the Crazy Horse half marathon on Oct. 10, 2016. After investigation, I found many places were closed or might close for weather conditions for an RV so I found Beaver Lake Campground had a cabin that would sleep up to 8, had a kitchen and bathroom and most importantly, allowed dogs....

Cozy, friendly environment close to everything in the area. Comfortable sites set amongst the Ponderosa Pines just off the highway. The staff was helpful offering suggestions that helped enhance our stay.

Spent a few days here off season. What can you say - Nice people run the park, well cared for, level pull-thru spots and reasonable rates. It's all good! Never used the bath house or other amenities so that's all I got on this great RV stop - we where there in a 36' Moho and would stay again.

From the moment I started to do research on the area for our trip I knew this campground would be great. I called several times and each time they were so incredibly friendly. They helped me select a pull thru location close to where my friends cabin would be. As we drove in it was easy to spot from the... More

We will NOT stay here again! This was our first time trying and staying at Beaver Lake Campground. The spots are very close to one another with very little privacy throughout the campground though the showers were clean. Despite their quiet after 10p.m. rule, both nights we had people outside talking until at least midnight. The first night there were... More

We stayed in a cabin for 7 days and really enjoyed our time at the campground. We had our own bathroom in the cabin and small AC unit (we just used the fan, the weather was perfect). We have 3 boys who loved running over to play basketball, volleyball, soccer and tether-ball. The pool was pretty cold, but always available... More

From the pictures this looked like a really nice campground, we were extremely disappointed. We had a tent site....After staying in National park campgrounds we sort of enjoy the great outdoors. We did not get that experience because our site looked like a parking lot. The pool area looked unkept and deserted; and the slide (which costs $7 per person)... More

We had reservations for two nights. Unhappy with another campground a few days before, we called Beaver Lake and asked if we could come earlier. They were very accommodating. The owner took us around on a golf cart and showed us some sites. We got to choose. Site 4 was great. Loved it! 34 not so much. 34 was our... More
