An afternoon at Rendezvous Beach, one of the few beach options left around Bear Lake. You’ll find it on the south end, but prepared to share it with everyone else coming to play this summer. You can rent water craft there. My favorite is the paddle board. And when you’re hungry there is also a place to get a hamburger, fries and shake, right there off the beach.
And if you want to avoid the crowds, come visit in May or September and have the beach to yourself like we did.
One of my favorite ATV trails so far is the Swan Flat road. Just 15 minutes up Logan Canyon from Bear Lake.
Entrance is on Highway 89 just east of Beaver resort turnoff. Along the trail there are several trail offshoots. We took a loop that brought us out to Highway 89 (Beaver Junction).
There are many areas to explore; Gibson Basin, Egan Basin, Fish Haven Canyon, and Left Fork Fish Haven. You can also view the north side of Bear Lake from one of the peaks (one of our favorite stops).
We enjoyed the trail for its easy ride, variety in scenery, and gorgeous fall color. There were a few mud puddles, but easy to traverse. A great trail for first timers out exploring Bear Lake. A fun day trip to find nature treasures. Bring a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the mountains.
