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). Beal is one of four small parks created through the auspices of the Ferry County and Stevens County commissioners. The actual land was donated by Tom and Donna Beal.
Easily accessed, the park is a pleasant place to enjoy a picnic, photograph the scenic Kettle River, and observe the many migratory birds that pass through this riparian wetland. 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.
Camping: Allowed (as of the time of this posting).
Recommended seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn

Be alert for wildlife and make certain your food and supplies are stored in bear-proof containers. There are no lifeguards present, so wear a life jacket when in the water.
