Garden City - Bear Lake State Park

940 North Bear Lake Boulevard

Brilliantly blue waters combined with sandy beaches are what call park visitors to play, fish, boat, and camp here at Bear Lake State Park. Minerals (calcium carbonate) suspended in the lake's waters are what help create its spectacular aqua-blue color.

The Park's concession operator, Bear Lake Fun Time, offers a variety of goods and services. So, whether it's boat rentals, comfortable cabins, fast-food services, or on-the-water fuel at the marina, we can help complete your vacation to here at Bear Lake.

Bear Lake State Park - Rendezvous Beach is named for the famous rendezvous of fur trappers and Indians held in the summers of 1827 and 1828. A thousand or more Native Americans and mountain men - including Jedediah Smith - attended the gatherings. There were so many campfires at the south end of the lake at these trading sessions that one observer called the area "a lighted city."

A stunning, deep, blue lake that feels independent from the rest of Creation. The beaches were a ton of fun. Expect the water to be cold. It didn’t much bother us, though.

I love this place the water is so clean. There are many places to eat. You can rent toys to play and great places to stay.

Clean and well kept camp ground. I just wish the trees were bigger for more shade. Close to beach is very convenient. Fire pits and covered picnic table in every camp site. Decent showers available. No entrance available after park closes at 10 pm can't remember when it opens.

One of the most beautiful vacation spots you could find. Its on the Utah, Idaho border with some sandy beaches or rocky beaches. There are RV camp sites or you can throw up a tent. At the northeast end you can rent like new jet skis, boats or other water toys & there is a store there also. The water is fed by the Bear River from mountain run off but its not extremely cold & its clear & a color blue you will never forget. Pretty good fishing also.

Amazing family vacation. Best one ever it's going to be our new tradition. Most beautiful lake I've ever seen and even with all the people it's big enough it's not a big deal.
