The area of Beaver Dam Flat was chained, plowed and seeded in 1956. A total of 1,590 acres of Beaver Dam Flat on the Haypress Allotment and neighboring Barclay Allotment were mechanically treated (plowed and chained) and seeded with crested wheatgrass and yellow sweet clover (Melilotus spp.). Fifty years of succession has resulted in the seeding reverting to a Wyoming sagebrush dominated site. The crested wheatgrass on the Haypress Allotment is all but gone and Wyoming sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata var. wyomingensis) dominates the site with a small component of perennial grasses, forbs and other shrubs to accompany it.

Beaver Dam State Park

Indians first explored this area, camping and hunting along the streams of Headwaters Creek and Pine Creek. The two streams come together to form Beaver Dam Wash which is directly above the reservoir. Spaniards may also have crossed the region between 1540 and 1775 while establishing trade routes in the Southwest. In 1849, a group of emigrants left the Old Spanish Trail to the south, and journeyed west to seek gold in California.
