Overview

Beech is part of a cluster of eight reservoirs that provide flood control, recreational opportunities, and water supply in the Beech River watershed in west Tennessee. The others are Cedar, Dogwood, Lost Creek, Pin Oak, Pine, Redbud, and Sycamore.

The reservoirs are open to the public, providing opportunities for boating, swimming, and fishing. Pin Oak Reservoir and its surrounding land are part of Natchez Trace State Park.
