BEAVER CREEK PARK
outdoor recreation abounds

Beaver Creek Park is part of a unique area in North Central Montana Plains Country, the Bears Paw Mountains. The Park is a 10,000-acre strip along the North slopes of the Bears Paw Mountains, about one-mile wide by 17 miles long, and is one of the largest county parks in the Nation. The geology is interesting. Formations range from glacial deposits at the northern end through volcanic strata and dikes, to metamorphic and sedimentary rocks in which fossils can be found. Within this natural recreation area are rolling grasslands, pine woods, aspen and cottonwood groves, rocky cliffs and cold rushing streams. The vegetation ranges from box elder, alder, willow, buffalo berry on the north end to cool leafy cottonwood, aspen, ponderosa pine, lodge pole pine, and Douglas fir on the south end. The Bear Paw Nature Trail is an educational and scenic experience, the perfect way to experience the history and wonderful nature that abounds in the Park. 

The Park abounds with wildlife, and among the many animals you may see are whitetail and mule deer, bobcat, beaver, coyote, fox, mink, pheasants, grouse, Golden Eagles and hawks.  Plant and bird species from the Rocky Mountains merge here with those of the Plains providing an excellent area for biological studies.

Beaver Creek Park is a natural recreation area that offers unlimited opportunities for recreation during all 4 seasons. Within the park are two lakes that are open to fishing all year round and are well stocked with Rainbow and Brook Trout. Stream fishing opens the 3rd Saturday in May. There are many developed camp and picnic grounds in the Park.  Most are equipped with tables, fire grates and vault toilets.  Smaller campgrounds don't require prior reservations but some special areas may be reserved for large group activities.  Also available at Camp Kiwanis is a youth camp with cottages, activity building and dining and rec hall.  These are available for organized groups by advance reservation only and there is a fee for their use.

The winter months bring ice fishing, snowshoeing and downhill skiing to the park. On the adjacent Rocky Boy Reservation are many more miles of cross-country skiing trails, as well as downhill skiing. The ski hill Bear Paw Ski Bowl, is operated by the Chippewa-Cree Business Committee and the Snowdance Ski Association. www.skibearpaw.com

Beaver Creek Park is located 10 miles south of Havre on Highway 234, has a resident Superintendent and Park Office located at Camp Kiwanis.  Contact the office at (406) 395-4565 for inquiries about the Park and requests for reservations.  All park users must have a current Park Permit, which may be purchased at the Park Office or in Havre.
