“Lawless family-ness”

Reviewed Jul 04, 2016

Overall Rating

Of all the campgrounds we saw on Bear Lake, this seemed to be the nicest. Nonetheless, it was fairly lawless (people didn't pay attention to the rules, anyway), and therefore fairly noisy.

Our campsite was an electric one, but closer to the beach they were without electricity. We've learned that means that folks use their generators a lot, which means a lot of noise. Also, families and teenagers alike were having a blast, which also means a lot of noise. Other campers ignored the rules about no fireworks (this was 4th of July weekend), which meant ... you guessed it, lots of noise. We actually had to turn the radio up in our camper to try to keep the dogs comfortable when the neighboring campsite decided on some serious fireworks. There was a fair amount of drunken noise at night, as well.

All that said, there was more room between campsites here than at any of the other campgrounds, and great views of the lake. WOW, what a huge lake! Our site (#11) was clean and had a nice grassed area next to it. It's possible to drive on the beach, and we drove our sailboat down there and launched it. The water was incredibly blue -- even a gorgeous turquoise.

It's a great location for families who don't care a lot about quiet but want a lot of beachy things for their kids to do. The rule is "no dogs on the beach," but, as I said, it was pretty lawless there so our dogs may have been the only ones who didn't join their owners on the beach.

If we were headed back to Bear Lake, which wouldn't be a mistake given its great size, we would choose this campground over others available.
