Bear Lake State Park

Situated in a high mountain valley, straddling the Idaho-Utah border, is Bear Lake. The lake's crystal-blue waters provide a plethora of recreational opportunities for swimmers, anglers, water-skiiers and boaters. The lake teems with native cutthroat and lake trout.

Also a state park, Bear Lake's 20-mile (32-kilometer) length entices boaters and anglers to explore, while 4 miles (6 kilometers) of gently sloping beach provide safe, warm swimming in late summer.
