“Bear River is a dream place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2007

I love Bear River, I have been going since I was 3 months old! I wait a long time to go and the weekend is the highlight of my summer vacation. They have a lot of things like biking, camp fires and they have a full stocked store. It has stuff you might have forgotten at home like lighters and food. The campsites are wonderful, i suggest the group campsite. We have a group of about 40 people and need the room. We alway have a lot of tent space left over. We always have a great time with riding bikes all over and swimming. I suggest going during the summer when its still cold at night, but warm during the day. Like nice for a camp fire at night an good for a campfire and smores. During the day go swimming and fishing. I really recomend this place!

I went to bear river lake resort in the summer. It was great, we rented a cabbin, and when we got their, it was a trailer, It had enough room to sleep 5 people, a small, but comfurtable kitchen. It also had a shower, and a bathroom. It was right next to the lake, so we fished every day. The fishing is great, I caught a 2 1/2 foot trout!!! What a great time. The other people are just too picky.

I became aware of Bear River Lake Resort through the Boy Scout program. We made reservations to take our four children there for fun in the snow. When we arrived the lodge was closed and you were unable to purchase a meal. The snowmobile shop was closed and rentals were not available. Neither of these services ever opened the three nights we were there. The trailer lacked the necessary plates or silverware and the doors didn't lock from the inside. The lodge caretaker was polite. So much for having fun in the snow. Especially when you had to drive a half hour to a gas station for a bite to eat.

While looking for a place to stay in the mountains, 60 miles south of Lake Tahoe we came across a website for Bear River Lake Resort. For $87 dollars a night + tax we rented a cabin for two nights. Unfortunately what we rented was not actually a cabin but rather a trailer in a crowded trailer park. It was old and dirty with undersized beds which we had to make ourselves. All night long we had to endure the unbelievably loud resort generator which made it impossible to sleep. Our house in the city is quieter. So much for a peaceful weekend in the mountains.
