We visited this beautiful state park on the weekend of June 7 and 8, 2014 with my hubby and mother in law. We had booked a tent drive in campsite which was about 100 ft away from Bear Head Lake.
The Campgrounds are very well planned and laid out as each site is well separated from other with lots of woods in between. The weather was perfect for boating and kayaking-not too hot but pleasant n overcast. We saw lots of kids and families fishing and managing a good catch. The lake seemed to be full of trouts and snapping turtles.
We walked along the beach trail which takes you around the Bear Head Lake. The trail has benches and fishing piers all along it till the picnic shelter and beach area. This trail is an easy and small one.
Evening was a perfect set up with lake in view, a bonfire and great dinner under the stars. Next day morning, we decided to see the Norberg Lake which is to the north-east of the Bear Head Lake. Norberg lake is a much smaller lake but beautiful and serene , surrounded by vegetation all around. The water there was as clear as it could get..We walked on the trail around the lake and reach the East bay of Bear Head lake. This site had a group camping area which was very well laid out. The view of the east bay lake was way more better than the main Lake area. There were small islands in the middle with trees. We did 3 mile long Norberg Trail which actually takes you within the woods and gives you a view if the East bay to your left. It was one of the most naturally laid trails i have ever been to. It was safe as my mother in law who has had a knee surgery was able to complete with some rest breaks in between.
Only word of caution for everyone who would want to camp here is to be prepared to deal with lost of mosquitoes and bugs. The number of mosquitoes is so high that one point we decided to return the same day. However, with the application of bug spray and wearing lighter color clothes, the nuisance reduced to some extent.
Apart from this, everything else was memorable and scenic. I would definitely recommend the State Park for camping.
