The Bear Lake Valley is a beautiful rural, historical and recreational setting shared by Bear Lake County in the southeast corner of Idaho and Rich County in the northeast corner of Utah.
The crown jewel is Bear Lake, a large scenic lake often called "Caribbean of the Rockies" for its intense turquoise blue water. As visitors catch their first glimpse of the lake, they marvel at its color and wonder what makes the lake so blue. The color is due to the reflection of limestone deposits suspended in the lake. Its water properties have led to the evolution of several unique species of fauna that occur only within the lake. Bear Lake is over 250,000 years old.
Jet ski across the turquoise water. Sail off into the sunset. Hunt for the elusive mule deer, awesome moose or the majestic rocky mountain elk. Troll for huge mackinaw or cutthroat trout in Bear Lake or flyfish for smaller brook and rainbow trout in the many local mountain streams. Experience the rush of snowmobiling. Snow ski at two local ski resorts or enjoy the splendor of cross-country skiing. Spend your vacation at Bear Lake!
