Bear Lake Aquatics Base is owned and operated by the Crossroads of the West Council, BSA. It is used for Scout events and campsite rentals during the summer season. There aren’t many places inland that you can say you really feel like you’re at the ocean. Bear Lake just happens to be one of them! With one mile of beach-front property, you will enjoy a beach-front camp like you’ve never dreamed of! All campsites are located between the highway and Bear Lake. Each campsite has potable water, a picnic table, campfire pit, and restrooms/showers a short walk away. No alcohol, drugs, or fireworks on property per Boy Scouts of America policies Bear Lake Aquatics Base is conveniently located north of Laketown and nearby many local attractions - Bear Lake State Park, Logan Canyon, Minnetonka Cave and the National Oregon Trail Museum. Explore neighboring Laketown to experience the local flavor, maybe even a raspberry shake.

Plenty of room for camping.. Not on top of each other’s camp. Plenty of out houses with water. Camp host was helpful, polite, welcoming! I will definitely be staying again! The Lindsey family

Phenomenal place
Was nestled on the side of the beach. The breeze can be a little strong. But perfection and peaceful. 0 complaints for what the area was. Beach access and showers were warm. Loved and would recommend and stay again longer.

Family space
Great little area far away from the crowds on North Beach. However, lots of people showing up to the beach front without having a reservation. Rocky in certain areas, but plenty of sand. Only request I would make is a pavilion down by the campers with hookups. Families try to gather there are it’s difficult. The host was wonderful, sweet, and kind.

Awesome location right on the shore
Really nice location right on the shore of Bear Lake with beautiful views. Camp sites are spacious with just a few minutes walk to the beach. Hosts were super nice and helpful! We will definitely be back next year. The only thing that could be improved is the bathrooms that are quite old.

At Bear Lake and on the beach!
This is a diamond in the rough. There was nothing available at any of the terrible places in town. I found this site on HipCamp and we were on a stretch of beach all by ourselves. North Beach was jammed.

Great beach and views, but very hot
This Campground has a beautiful location on the East Bank of Bear Lake, with a nicely maintained private beach. The camp host was the best I have ever encountered anywhere - she was such a nice person who legitimately wanted to make everyone's stay better. My mixed review is more just because of the setting. There is virtually no shade in the campsites, other than the small shade structures. Don't underestimate how miserable this can feel when it's really hot. If you have an RV or are planning to spend nearly all of your time in the lake, then it's fine. But if you are planning on hanging around camp much at all, it's pretty awful. Except the view, which is stunning. We ended up leaving a day early because my husband wasn't doing well with the heat and exposure. The other part of no trees is that sound REALLY carries, so it is a loud campsite. The host was very responsive, though, in trying to correct problems with loud guests. I just recommend earplugs. Make sure your kids are prepared for the pit latrines. It's in the listing, so not hidden. There is a spigot and a two-stall outhouse for every 2 sites, and a shower house located in the middle of the camp., which is nice.

Nice view and tents for each site. Some sites are hard to drive to with a trailer. Restrooms are horrible, with huge gaps in the doors, very smelly and being close to some camp sites. They need to be rebuilt with brick walls for some added privacy

Bear lake aquatic base camp ground
The best place ever!!!!! I worked here when it was for scouts and it feels like home. The campsite was spacious and the bathroom was close but not so close we could smell it. Mary the camp host talked to us a few times andI she is so nice and made us feel welcome and even let us extend check out. Overall great experience!

Camping con una excepcional playa
Nos encanto la playa, sitios grandes y con Sombra artificial. Baños y duchas. Los encargados del camping fueron muy amables. Como recomendacion, seria excelente si tuvieran parking free o pago para RV para las personas que van a regresar Al camping en unas semanas.

We enjoyed our time at site 2! We had a great shade structure and beach access. The camp host was very friendly. We were satisfied with the bathrooms and showers. This is primitive camping, which we knew and were prepared for! We had no issues with noise or neighbors. We even got to enjoy a fireworks show across the lake!

Absolutely amazing. Beach front camping at this gem of a lake. Feels like the ocean. The facilities aren't the greatest but well worth it for the views.

Full hookup sites were way to small for trailers with slide outs. Rough road down to campsites. Quite hours we’re not inforced. My son was stung multiple times from a hornets nest located inside power hookups.

We love the Bear lake Boy Scout camp. Lovely setting, relaxed rules, AMAZING campground host, she is the best ever. We were VERY sad to hear dogs would no longer be allowed and hope a pet deposit could be set up for those who don't clean up after their pats.
