Take a short, scenic drive to Beaver Dan and Beaver Lake. Beaver Lake is the birthplace of the White River. Paved access roads wind through 12 developed parks. There are 2,008 acres of campgrounds and over 650 individual campsites. Other facilities — picnic sites, swimming beaches, hiking trails, boat launching ramps, sanitary dump stations, group picnic shelters and amphitheaters — are also available in the parks.
