Bear Lake State Park is located in the southeastern corner of Idaho near the Cache mountain range. Campsites for groups as large as 50 are available along with several serviced and standards sites. A popular destination for water lovers, Bear Lake welcomes about 15,000 campers annually.
At 20 miles long and 8 miles wide, half of Bear Lake resides in Idaho, the other half in Utah. Known for its intense turquoise colored water, the lake is often called the Caribbean of the Rockies. A gradual slope to the lake bottom provides an enormous swimming area in the summer. In the winter, those with buckets and nets can ice fish for the Bonneville cisco, a fish found nowhere else on earth.
