Since I grew up just west of the Lake years ago, it was a treat to spend the day walking the beautiful trails and to see how the community values the resources. The center offers many opportunities for families and clubs.

I enjoy hiking, XC skiing and running at BL. They have many programs throughout the year for people from all ages, young or old if you enjoy the outdoors you will find something that interests you.

3 mile hike was nice and it was a beautiful day. There are educational things in the mail lobby, along with a gift shop.

We always visit when we come to BVille. This time was great because of the Fall feeling in the air and the temperature was great to do the Lake Loop Trail.

I was really looking forward to visiting here. My friend brought her kayak and I was going to borrow one from the facilities. However when we walked in they wouldn't let my friend use her kayak that she brought up because it would crowd the lake. We were really annoyed that they made her pay. There was no details about...

My friend and I hiked the Lake Trail and the experience was so uplifting that I signed up for membership. If green spaces hit your spiritual button, go visit!

Want to go for a hike, but don't have time to head into the wilderness then check out Beaver Lake Nature Center. The trails are well cared for and the volunteers are kind. Just bring some mosquito repellent.

If you are looking for a great place to run a 3 mile lake loop, this is it. The view is spectacular while setting your only pace. I trails are so peaceful and never overcrowded. Yes, there is admission but well worth it. Buy a membership and come back often.

Lots of trails to tire out your kids!!! A nice picnic area. Bathrooms are available along with snack food (Lots of Trail Mix :) ) Keep your eyes peeled for little critters running through the forest. A deer or two could cross your path, as well! The lake is beautiful and you can catch the breeze during these warm days... More
