The Turquoise water at Bear Lake invite you to dive in and enjoy the many recreational activities Bear lake has to offer year-round.


Riding the trails on some ATV’s or mountain bikes is like a golf cart for the mountains. Trade in your polo for lumberjack plaid.

Local Dining

Christmas at Bear Lake

Bear Lake, aka “Utah’s North Pole” (starting now), all covered in snow. Want to really get into the spirit of things? How about a secluded cabin for you and the entire family? It’s winter vibes up. Bake gingerbread cookies, go sledding, make wassail… bring your Christmas tree and hang your stockings by the rented chimney with care.

Plunge into the Depths of Winter

  • Bear Lake Monster Winterfest Plunge— Jump into the lake to raise funds for a local charity. • Cisco Disco — Dip net for Cisco fish (bring your fishing license).• Craft Fair — Crafts, food and raffle prizes.• Bait Tournament — Bring your biggest Cisco fish to the marina for prizes.• Chili Cook-off — Judging & spectator taste-testing.

There are three hundred and fifty miles of groomed snowmobile trails with no crowds, no fences and no parents! Keep your eyes peeled for moose and elk.

Take the whole family over to the Bear Lake Golf Course, Logan Canyon and Idaho’s Emigration Canyon for cross-country bliss. And don’t forget the great fishing we have in the fall and winter, ice fishing when the lake freezes over is a great day of fun. Ice fishing is one of those great things that more people really need to experience. It offers a unique experience that you get to spend with your families and friends and let’s not forget about how much fun you can have whilst you do it. It’s really easy to get into as well, just make sure you get the right equipment, like these ice fishing tip ups and you’ll be all set. Just remember to have fun and enjoy yourself. There’s nothing more peaceful and rewarding than spending your time out on the lake with your friends and family and just enjoying yourself.
