State Park

BEAR LAKE STATE PARK – EASTSIDE – On the east side of Bear Lake. Accessed via Cisco Road – Includes the areas known as FIRST POINT, SOUTH EDEN, CISCO BEACH, RAINBOW COVE, AND NORTH EDEN. Distances vary from four miles to 13 miles north on Cisco Road from Laketown and the Cisco Road and SR 30 Junction. First Point, Cisco Beach, and Rainbow Cove are open year round.

Bear Lake was formed 28,000 years ago by earthquake activity. At an elevation of 5,923 feet, Bear Lake is 20 miles long and eight miles wide, 208 feet deep, and covers 112 square miles.

Originally Bear Lake was called Black Bear Lake by Donald Mackenzie, explorer for the North West Fur Company who discovered it in 1819 while scouting for fur-bearing animals. The name was later changed to Bear Lake. Two Mountain Man Rendezvous were held in the area in the mid 1820's.

WHY IS IT SO BLUE? Its beautiful and unique green-blue color is the result of calcium carbonates suspended in the lake.

Stayed at two camp areas

Loved staying here with access to showers, water, and restaurants near by. Would definitely come back. Stayed during Memorial Day weekend and it was a little busy but it rained so I was able to find places to stay.

Remote and Sparten = Beautiful

Bear Lake is the water you will enjoy when visiting this campground. New renovations planned starting fall 2021. Last chance for dry camping (vault toilets and showers possible at Rendezvous Campground).

The access to Bear Lake is great for kayaks, paddle boards, and swimming!

Crystal blue waters... Enjoy the solitude and spacious sites.
