Two beautiful lakes offer some of the most beautiful scenery and best recreational opportunities on Beech Mountain.
Buckeye Lake is the centerpiece of the town’s recreational facilities. The area includes a softball field, playground for the kids, and is the trail head for several of Beech Mountain’s hiking and biking trails.
A scenic 1/8-mile course wraps around the lake and is perfect for both walking and jogging. A parking area is available with direct access to the trail. This area also has a basketball court. Fishing is also available (license required), duck watching and a new pier dedicated to our leader Mr. Beech, Charlie Burleson.
Approximately one hour to boating, boat rental, trout and bass fishing as well as swimming and a restaurant.
