Beaver Lake is a lake of smooth ice, 7 mi long and 5 mi wide, enclosed on the south and east by Flagstone Bench and Jetty Peninsula. The lake is situated at the south end of an area of rough ice (a stagnant glacier), 17 mi ESE of Aramis Range, Prince Charles Mountains. Discovered by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) personnel in 1956. An Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) camp was established in the vicinity in September 1957 and the lake was used extensively as a landing area by Beaver aircraft.[1]
