Look for beavers and other wildlife along a winding spring-fed stream.
The Beaver Creek Nature Area is located along Beaver Creek and is open year-round. This stream flows all year-round, supplying numerous plants and animals with needed water. It also gives opportunities for visitors to be able to observe nature up close. There are excellent hiking and trails that are perfect for kids and adults and have plenty of shady areas and cool bridges. The trails take hikers along the river and up and down the hills.
Visitors often enjoy biking, birding, hiking, and even cross-country skiing in the winter. There are restrooms near the cabin area, and guests can stop at the picnic shelters and picnic tables for a place to sit. Every September, the park hosts the Homesteader Day Harvest Festival. It allows visitors to get a taste of homestead life. This free event usually features fiddlers, pioneer crafts, living history, and old-time farming demonstrations. You can also see the historical 1870s log cabin during your visit.
