Bear Lake State Park reviews
This review is specifically for the North Beach area of Bear Lake. It was a great little "Beach" area. There was plenty of parking and places to set up. The cost to park was $14 for those coming from.... more »
Calm morning, due to the low water levels, it was only knee deep for about 300 ft, which we enjoyed. Kids went on kayaks. Great morning on the lake. more »
The best place to visit. The water is chilly as expected but it's beautiful and clear water. If you are looking for a beach, the Idaho side is cheaper ($5 for day use) and had more beach. Get there early for a decent spot. Best raspberry shakes at the local shops. I had several.
It's Utah's ocean. Only 2 hours away from Salt Lake, the beach and water are great in August! We come every year with a group and love it! Water skis are fun with some big waves. The wind usually picks up about 2pm and stops around 7pm.
