However, the Wildlife Management area, established in 1960, offers more than just local flora and fauna...it offers the ghostly apparition of a woman known as "The Beech Bottom Lady."
The Beech Bottom Lady is seen roaming the area around the Beech Bottom campground section of the WMA. It is believed that this lady, dubbed Isabelle, is searching for her husband who drowned in the lake. When this story first hit the internet, the date given for the death of the husband was 1936, which didn't mesh with the fact that the lake was not in existence prior to 1962. However, since there hasn't been any incidents in the lake's 47 year history that support the story, it IS possible that the legend stems from when Plum Orchard Creek was the main body of water in the area.
