Bear Lake, Water Skiing, Utah, Recreation, Summer

Bear Lake Water Skiing

A favorite water skiing area, Bear Lake has over 160 square miles of uncrowded, turquoise-blue water.

Boating/Water Skiing

Utah may be the 2nd driest state in the country, but our watersports opportunities are legendary. Utah ranks as one of the top ten states in surface-acres of boat-able waters. Lake Powell alone has more shoreline than the U.S. West Coast; our whitewater rivers are world-class; our reservoirs and lakes are some of the biggest in the country; and our blue-ribbon fishing streams attract anglers from all over the world. We may be a desert, but water recreation in Utah is as good as it gets - houseboating, water skiing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, swimming - it's available in abundance.

Since John Wesley Powell's adventures down the Green and Colorado Rivers, our whitewater has lured adventurers from around the planet. From the deep waters of Lake Powell in the south to the turquoise mountain waters of Bear Lake our flat water lakes offer reprieve from the summer heat.
