The deep canyons, flowing streams, waterfalls, pinion, juniper and ponderosa forests of Beaver Dam have beckoned people for centuries. Today, a visit to Beaver Dam State Park allows visitors to experience the pristine-natural beauty and primitive-rustic character that distinguishes this park from all others. Located in rugged canyon country near the Utah border, Beaver Dam is an excellent area to fish, hike, mountain bike, and enjoy nature.
