Beaver Lake Park
Located on the Southwest corner of the lake, Beaver Lake Park has been a part of the Lake since the 1930's when it was first developed as a weekend resort. Later it was a CYO summer camp for childeren before it was sold to King County in 1985. Transferred to the city of Sammamish on January 1, 2003, Beaver Lake Park offers opportunities for recreation, hiking, and exploring its 54 forested acres. In addition, Beaver Lake is an attractive fishing spot.
