Nice little park. I went there with the Harley Owners Group for a chapter picnic on my Harley. It was a pretty decent ride. Beautiful surroundings and excellent amenities. The lake was rather small yet added a nice view.

My site (#8) had an AWESOME view of the lake! I LOVED waking up every morning & looking out my door/windows & seeing the glistening lake in the forefront! Site was level & asphalted. Some trees/shade. Picnic table & fire ring were included as well. BATHROOMS WERE SPOTLESS!!!! CLEAN & ROOMY (bathroom-shower combo rooms). Ok, her comes the NEGATIVES (why I did not give it a 5th star) #1 WHY ? would you put the electricity box & the water connection on the opposite side of the rig???!!! I would have had to park FACING BACKWARDS from the lake if I wanted to connect my water/electric on my rig! LUCKILY, I had an extra 25’ electrical extension & an extra 10’ water hose so I could park FACING the lake & enjoy the BEAUTIFUL view! #2 - NO CELL CONNECTION whatsoever!!!! Only a miniscule bar from AT&T - that was it! NO TV reception (1 channel) IT RAINED intermittently the w/e I was there so I was remanded to be inside, BUT THE VIEW MADE UP FOR IT! Otherwise- this is a beautiful camping location to take the fishing poles & the canoe/kayak out! Fish WERE caught! The BIKE trail was probably a Level 1, with some nice foliage & fauna to be seen. DID NOT DO THE hiking trail. Maybe next time. OH YES, there will be a 2nd trip to this spot!!! Did I mention the lake view was FANtastic!

Bear Lake is a jewel outside of Milton, Fl. The four mile loop around the lake is a perfect dog walk. Recent burn activity around half of the lake has temporarily diminished the wildlife, but spring rains should quickly change that. Expect a few muddy spots, but most of the worst ones have been boardwalked.

The campsites are clean and shady. We had a view of the lake. Perfect place to get away from it all. The bathrooms and showers are new. There are two cool trails to hike at varies time commitments. Safe too. A tip - there where a TON on ants at our site. A little spray, problem solved. Get a site near the bathroom.

We have been to Bear lake,on a couple of occasions for day trips,and always found it to be peaceful,and beautiful.We decided to go for a four day camping trip with our motor home.They have many great waterfront sites capable of holding most motor homes.There are also several pull thru sites,which also have a great view of the lake.Sites have electric and water hook ups.The rest room and shower facilities are old but clean,and from what I 've been told there are plans to put in new and more modern facilities.The fishing I'm told is good,and there are three trails,a 4 mile around the lake trail,the sweetwater trail to Krull lake about 2 miles.,and a 6 mile around the lake bike trail.All are well marked and kept.Bear lake allows boats with electric motors,and there are canoes to rent for $15 a day.There is no swimming because there might be alligators but we have never seen one,but swimming is available at nearby Krull lake.The best part of the trip were the camp hosts Joe and Gail who were as nice as we've ever met.They had many stories and advice and greeted new campers personally.There is also a large pavillion with professional kitchen for rent for events.If you want a quiet time or like to hike, and fish this is the place to go.
