Bear Lake, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Bear Lake is a large, natural lake with a striking turquoise color. (Limestone particles suspended in the water are responsible for the interesting hue.) It is surrounded by low, lightly timbered mountains to the east and west, marshland to the north and flatlands with stands of cottonwoods to the south. Bear Lake's size, 20 miles long by 8 miles wide, makes it inviting to boaters, skiers and sailers. It also offers decent fishing for cutthroats, rainbows, mackinaw, and whitefish. A large marina and numerous rentals and outfitters offer everything you need to enjoy the lake.

Bear Lake straddles the Utah/Idaho border in the upper northeast corner of Utah. It is 48 miles northeast over the Cache Mountains from Logan. The main season runs from June to September. Winter brings ice fishing and snowmobiling opportunities.

Garden City (pop. 300) is the main town at the lake. It offers several lodging options and a few dining options. The area's culinary specialty is raspberry shakes, which just about everyone seems to offer.
