Beaver River is a uniquely isolated community in the Adirondack wilderness, inaccessible by road or to the power grid. A few hearty souls call Beaver River home, while most of its property owners visit seasonally. Summers of boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and relaxing yield to hunting and beautiful vistas in autumn and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in winter. Ferry or boat access is available in warmer weather. Beaver River property owners share a love of nature, hearty friendships and resourcefulness in maintaining the comforts of home in this secluded environment.
The Beaver River Property Owners’ Association strives to preserve this unique community and its natural environment. In addition to promoting community events such as the Memorial Day parade, we maintain first aid and firefighting equipment as well as boat docks at Grassy Point on the Stillwater Reservoir. We also monitor changes in laws and regulations that could impact our community.
I invite you to browse our site, including the BRPOA constitution and bylaws on the Mission tab, the brief History of Beaver River tab, and the Announcements. The Links tab offers a trove of local information including ways to visit Beaver River for a few hours or a few days. If you’re intrigued by what a true wilderness experience has to offer, you need to visit Beaver River.
Property owners who are not currently members of the BRPOA are invited to join us. We recognize that time ‘at camp’ is precious, so we strive to hold short and productive meetings where everyone’s concerns and ideas are aired and effective action can be moved forward. Dues are a small annual fee as set in the bylaws. Activities outside of meetings include an occasional work party (e.g. dock maintenance), fire drill or barbecue.
Come join us, meet your neighbors and support your community! Meetings are noted on the Announcements tab. In the meantime, feel free to contact me or any of the BRPOA board members listed on the Contacts tab with any questions. Thank you for your interest in the BRPOA.
