Beal Park is a pleasant place to enjoy a picnic, observe the many migratory birds that pass through this riparian wetland, and photograph the scenic Kettle River, which can be accessed from the park. The park has two picnic tables, three fire pits (before using fire pits, check with local ranger station for burn bans), and one Sani-Can toilet. There are no trash receptacles, because you’re expected to carry out your trash.
Located west on Kettle River Rd from Hwy 21, Beal Park is a small, road-side park located on the Kettle River (approximately seven miles west of the town of Curlew).
