Beautiful family friendly

Campsites are shady. The small lake is great for kiaks, paddle boards or row boats. There is a variety of hiking trails. One goes all around the lake. Not for large RVs.

Stunning views BUT.

Absolutely stunning views BUT I cannot adequately describe the smell of sulfur and rot that permeates the island. No idea when I'll get the smell out of the camper. ALSO THE SWARMS OF MOSQUITOES. I am wearing 3 layers of clothes in the scorching heat of the day because they are biting through my clothes. I itch all over and even DEET won't touch it.

Bear Lake on Utah side 🤠

Very nice spots for a 40 ft classA or any large RV. Pretty level with nice views. All have water,electric but no sewer. Our site is 11 and it is right off the beach and no campers are able to block our view. Again a awesome lake for kids because you can walk out in the lake pretty far before it gets deep.

East side also Idaho side. Saint Charles ID elevation 5940 ft

If coming from Idaho Falls stay on 30 Hwy till Montpelier then take 89 hwy to St Charles. If ya coming from Jackson Wy stay on 89 Hwy . If ya need Groc stop at the store in Montpelier. Google will take you the shorter way which you will be traveling on a very dusty dirt road for 6 miles or more. Sometimes the shorter way isn’t the best way. Sites are pretty level they have electric some with water and some with 50amps. They all have picnic tables no sewer. They have a dump station for that. Beach area is sandy and water is very shallow so if you have kids not to worry so much. Water is a turquoise color very cool like your in the Caribbean. Pics coming soon waiting for the smoke to clear from the west fires. Here for 5 days today is Sept 13 2020.

Decent lakefront campsite

Got a space here during one of the busier weekends of summer. Table with shade, fire pit, on Bear Lake. It's a 3 because we prefer more private campsites (this was not), but you cannot beat this kind of access to the lake.


Very clean

Caribbean of the Rockies

Such an appropriate description! We had a wonderful time! Great campsite near the water. The beach has fine sand and the water depth is super gradual - it'll take 50-60 yards to get waist deep. Crystal clear water. I dont normally get into lakes, but this was different. There is hiking and biking nearby - a little bit of something for everyone. We are definitely going back.

Blue Water Paradise

We stayed here in mid August and could not have had better weather. You are pretty exposed here, so don’t expect to park in shade. though there are shaded picnic tables and the water was so fresh!

I have never been in a more blue lake, think Lake Tahoe CA blue…

Camping was $10 a night and there were a ton of sites.

The beach itself was pretty rocky, but it’s a very short walk from the campsite.

Fire rings and the shaded picnic table made this and easy place to work! We love out of our van and rely ok Verizon service. Which was roughly 2-3 bars of LTE.

Dogs are allowed here, so our two dogs were able to swim.

Bathrooms were nice and clean! Vaulted toilets, but man were they clean…

You are 25 minutes from a town if you need supplies or a raspberry milkshake.

Worth the trip/stop if you want to hang by a clear blue lake and enjoy a starlit night.

Amazing sunsets

This park is a great stopover on your way through Utah or weekend visit. The lake is clean and still very natural. The swans circling the water are something to see. Lots of shade rustic but serviceable showed. A bit pricy at 30 a night but right off the highway and no real traffic noise.
