North Beach Bear Lake 2017

North Beach at Bear Lake 2017.
If you’ve wondered what North Beach is like this summer due to all the spring run off, I won’t sugar coat it for you.  It’s not the gem it used to be.  All the famous beautiful sand is underwater and probably will be through July.  All that is left is rocky sand and weeds.  I brought work gloves and made a yucky pile of sticker weeds to clear our little area.  You’ll find grasses and debris all along the whole beach.
One plus, we didn’t have to carry our gear very far as the water’s edge is close to the road.

Because of the distance from where I live, I don’t think I’ll be heading back anytime soon.  North Beach was known for great sand and the best beach at Bear Lake, but I predict that many visitors will be highly disappointed this year.   As for this local, I’ll be sticking to the Utah side all summer.
