Boating is a popular activity at Bear Lake. The lake is 20 miles long and 8 miles wide, providing space for many different types of watercraft.

Bear Lake is one of best kept secrets in utah/Idaho a mountain lake with plenty of sandy beach to play on and the lake is big enough not to be crowded. Bear Lake is often called the Caribbean of the Rockies for its intense turquoise-blue water. If you traveling through the Logan canyon you can enjoy the beautiful scenery but as visitors catch there view of the lake they are amazed at is almost unreal blue water and wonder what makes the lake so blue. The unique color of the water is due to the reflection of the limestone deposits suspending in the lake. Garden City is famous for the Raspberry Days celebration and there famous Raspberry Shakes and is a must try while you are there.

Bear Lake can be a little chilly early in the season but even June is a little nippy but warms up well for end of June through September, Bear Lake has become a year round favorite vacation spot. Winter activities may involve snowmobiling, snowboarding/snow skiing at Beaver Mountain Nestled in the Cache National forest in Logan Canyon only 15 minutes west of Bear Lake on scenic US 89.

History of Bear Lake
The Bear Lake Valley was first inhabited by Shoshoni Tribes, then fur trappers. Between 1825 & 1840, many mountain men and Native Americans met on the south end of the lake to swap goods and stories! These meetings became known as mountain man rendezvous.
The first permanent settler to the Bear Lake Valley was reportedly Thomas Pegleg Smith, a crusty, one-legged, ex-mountain man. During the 1840s, he set up a trading post to provide supplies to the emigrants on the famous Oregon Trail. Early Mormon pioneer leader Brigham Young sent the first group of permanent settlers to Bear Lake Valley in 1863. This group was led by Charles C. Rich. The County bears his name.
