Here are some ideas...

Epic Recreation: Get your recreational rentals here! Great staff, great memories. Rent boats, jetskis, razors, paddleboards, kayaks, and more.

 

Beaver Creek Lodge: We are also teamed up with Beaver Creek Lodge and always refer our guests to go try out some of the things that they have! The most popular in the summer is the guided horseback riding. You can choose long trails, short trails, lunch in between, and more. It is beautiful where they take you and I would highly recommend giving this a try!

 

Raspberry Days (Starts first Thursday in August every year): Get your rodeo on at the Laketown Raspberry Days rodeo! Enjoy some burgers, Chad’s raspberry icecream, and some good cowboyin’! They also to a 5k on the beach so sign up for that. And just enjoy everything else that comes with Raspberry Days - the craft fair, concert, food, booths, etc.

 

Pickleville Playhouse: Check out our local theater while you’re here! Pickleville Playhouse has been getting bigger and bigger every year and now they have added Christmas shows and other shows in the off-season. The family that started it is hilarious and they write the plays themselves. So if you're looking for a good-time, local experience go see one of these plays. You can get tickets for dinner & the show or just the show!
 

Minnetonka Cave: Minnetonka Cave is a large limestone cave located about 20 minutes away from where you will be staying. I personally think it is good for all ages but some have described it as "strenuous" (there are stairs), so in that regard I guess just use your best judgement! But I think it's worthwhile. Also - IMPORTANT NOTE - if you are going to do this they only accept cash. So do not go up there thinking you can pay for everyone with a card (Yes, we've made this mistake before.) 

 

H3O Event: Be a part of this best event every year in Bear Lake! Includes stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, and kayaking. Sign up as a team or individual. Nervous about one of the areas? There are different distances for each area that you can choose from. All equipment is provided – just need to bring a good attitude!

 

Feeling adventurous?

l Mountain or Road Bike up St. Charles area

l Mountain or Road bike in Laketown (south side of lake)

l Visit Old Ephraim's grave (fun hike/ride!) Razor riding to this would be a blast

l Hike Limber Pine Trail (nice and short and fun for little ones)

l GO TO BLOOMINGTON LAKE! This is my family's tradition. It has a rope swing (usually) and places where you can have a fire and make some raspberry cobbler. Mmmm!

l Get “the least famous shakes” at Zipz. You won’t be disappointed!

l Biking the east side of the lake is one of my personal favorites (preferrably early morning or in the evening)

l Walk the boardwalk at night - this is located at the Garden City park just right in town. You'll most likely see fireflies given the time that you'll be here!

l Go on a tour of the Paris tabernacle

Snowmobiling: Best kept secret in Bear Lake is the endless winter fun - starting with the variety of snowmobiling areas! There are any trails from beginning to advanced.

Snow razor: Razors aren't just for summer! Check out Epic's snow razor and have some fun tearin' up the snow. 

Snow Biking: Don't want to hike or razor? Take the snow bikes out into the mountains - create your own trails if you want!
