Beaver Creek State Forest is a large complex of three reforestation areas covering 3,694 acres. The topography is very hilly with thin soils and rocky exposed ridge tops. The northernmost boundary of the forest includes more than a mile of frontage on Mud Lake.
There are several unusual plant communities which occur across this area, including approximately 50 acres of silver maple dominated swamp hardwoods. Upland areas also include locally abundant populations of butternut and cork elm.
