Bear Lake State Park is located on the east side of Bear Lake. It provides a campground, bowery, and a day use area. Bear lake is 20 miles long and 8 miles wide with half of the lake in Idaho and half in Utah. The lake is a water sports Mecca attracting boaters, water skiers, and beach lovers. All that inviting water is hard to resist. Swimmers will enjoy a 1-1/2 mile beach on the east side.
Boat ramps are available for boaters and water skiers who want to enjoy the water, too. A life jacket station offers free use of floatation devices for your safety.
Fishing: Anglers can try for a native cutthroat or lake trout in the summer. In the winter, they can come back with buckets and nets when the Bonneville Cisco run. The fish is found nowhere else on Earth. Visit Idaho Fish & Game website.
There are several rental businesses renting boats, wave runners and other water toys.
