Bear Lake State Park

Bear Lake is often called the Caribbean of the Rockies for its intense turquoise blue water. As visitors catch their first glimpse of the lake, they marvel at its color and wonder what makes the lake so blue. The unique color is due to the reflection of the limestone deposits suspended in the lake. Each season lends its own characteristic to the lake. Year-round, enjoy a number of recreational and cultural activities. Experience the rush of snowmobiling on our 350 miles of groomed trails and wide open play areas.  Ski Beaver Mountain and enjoy some of Utah's best powder. Navigate your personal watercraft across 70,000 acres of turquoise water. Feel the rod-bending excitement of a Bear Lake cutthroat on the end of your fishing line. Sail off into the sunset. Explore America's past and discover the stories of the hearty souls that settled this area.
