The Beversee is a lake in the northern part of the city of Bergkamen in North Rhine-Westphalia .

The forest lake is around 700 m long, 100 m wide and has a depth of up to 6 m. It formed between 1940 and 1942 in a depression caused by subsidence . The valley is traversed by the Beverbach , a tributary of the Lippe , which is dammed at the western end of the lake in front of the Datteln-Hamm Canal . The size of the lake is regulated with the help of a pumping station.

The Beversee is part of the 100 hectare nature reserve of the same name, one of three nature reserves in Bergkamen. It is surrounded by a hiking trail, the accesses of which are at Marina Rünthe (at the end of the Hafenweg), at the B 233 and at the Bergkamen power station at the level of the canal barrage. On the latter two there are information boards about the lake and the nature reserve. From the Emscher Park cycle path , which runs on the other side of the canal, you can reach the lake via the barrage; The Römer-Lippe-Route cycle path runs along the canal side towards the lake . There is a small observation tower on the southern bank from which the lake can be seen.

The lake, like the marina, the canal and the neighboring heap of large wood, is part of the route of industrial culture .
