Our family stayed in a cute little cabin like this one, some of which come equipped with full kitchens and bathrooms. The hubs and I "roughed" it and stayed in a tent, because we like good old-fashioned camping. After waking up at 6 am from all the noisy people around us, however, I wouldn't be opposed to snagging one of those cute cabins next time haha.
We rented a bike that looked more like a golf cart to ride around town in and I can tell you it was quite the work out. We only made it far enough to get Raspberry shakes, then we decided we'd rather trek it on foot, but hey, at least we probably worked off our shakes!
The beach was gorgeous, if a little cold, and we had fun walking out with tubes and letting the waves pull us back in. The crazy thing about this lake is you can actually walk out for miles before the lake even gets deep; something which really helps a person like me who is afraid of water. I still had mini break downs, but the hubs was good about it and it was a fun day overall. The hubs spent time building a sand castle with our niece and nephews and it was the cutest thing ever!
There was a section near our camp which featured covered wagons and tepees you could rent to stay in. Next time, I definitely want a covered wagon! The old Oregon Trail runs right through parts of Bear Lake so a lot of time has been spent spotlighting the origins of that area and this is one of those fun features.
This is an overhead shot of lake taken at a lookout point up the canyon. The water is so beautiful and blue, it's why I love going back every year!
I love all the history surrounding destination spots and I love this little tidbit about the lake.
I hope you guys had an awesome weekend and did something you enjoyed, even if it was staying at home with a good book!
