Beaver Creek Recreation Area–Week 2

We started off our week with some much-needed rain. We got 2.5 inches last week Tuesday and about a quarter-inch Wednesday. Most of North Dakota is in a drought, so this was so nice to see! There were some areas that also got strong wind and hail; luckily we didn’t. A ranger called us early in the morning to let us know severe weather was coming our way; Curt had been watching the radar already. We were lucky the storm split and we only got rain and some wind. Another evening the rangers and us went around the campground and let the campers know of a severe storm warning; again, we were lucky.

We aren’t as busy here as we were at the two State parks. We don’t have to clean fire pits, and there’s a lot less sites to clean. There is a small amphitheater area, but no interpreter or programs. We have a Polaris electric vehicle to drive. When we were at Fort Stevenson State Park, we bought a “grabber” to see how it worked for picking up litter. We were impressed and got another one at a shorter length that works better for me. It’s a lot easier on the back and knees.

There is a fishing area across the highway, a day use area, that you can fish off-shore.
