The 25′ x 16′ Beaver Lodge platform is named for the local web-footed residents although you’re more likely to see a deer bounding through this cypress-tupelo backwater. This camping platform is located at the back of Upper Deadwater Creek off Devil’s Gut about 5 miles up from Jamesville and only 2 miles from Barred Owl Roost. It was built by volunteers from around the state. (Think piling-pounding over cypress roots!) (Note: Access to Gardner’s Creek from the US64 bridge is no longer available.)
Beaver Lodge has a companion platform–making the combination a good choice for larger groups! Beaver Tail is located only 80 feet away and joined by a walkway and a bridge. Beaver Lodge can be booked in combination with Beaver Tail or on its own. Beaver Tail doubles the capacity of this location, helping us better serve scouting, student, research and other groups.
