Bear Lake Basecamp!

· Liberty, Bear Lake, Idaho
10 acres hosted by Chris W.
2 RV/tent sites
This has become a great place for our family to go to get away for the weekends. The nights are absolutely beautiful and you can see the stars. You can hear the coyotes off in the distance chipping and howling. My kids love to ride their ATV on the trails and we go for hikes and just relax. There is one fire pit for use at each camp spot (2 spots), just please go into the trees and find some wood to re-stack what you have used and ensure it is out with water and dirt. I fight wildfires during the summer and don’t want to have to fight one up there. Plus I may be hard to reach depending on where I’m located. Learn more about this land: Our Bear Lake Bascamp is perfect for boondocking or pitch a tent and camp in our 5 acres meadow or find a small shady spot in the 5 acres of  quakies and pine trees!  Off grid camping! OHV trails (ride from camp), bring your mountain bikes or even just go for a hike. Located at the edge of the Caribou-Targhe National Forest, Montpelier Ranger District, Idaho. The sunrises are amazing and in the evening you can listen to the coyotes off in the distance. It is open in the winter for snowshoeing or snowmobiling in with wood ready for the fire pit!  Recommend, that when you first arrive, build a small fire in the fire pit and the smoke will get rid of any of the bugs around.  We get up there about 1 time a month and mow/trim the path, parking and work on the trails in the pines.   Turn left at the smile face....When you see it, you'll know what I mean ;)  Please be respectful of others who have property in the area as well.  Don't climb over anyone's fences.

Site 1 - Bear Lake Basecamp!
It was a beautiful place to set up a tent, my only suggestions would be make it more clearly marked and also to be able to find the fire ring that wasn’t by the cabin and outhouse. The one site with the cabin and shed had a creepy vibe for us, so I was thankful the other site was open. Was t sure which site we were suppose to take.

Not private, campsites are shared.
So campsite 1 and 2 are pretty much on a drive way of a property, there was another couple there which we had no privacy, they went to bed at midnight so we couldn’t sell til then and then when they left they drove 1 foot away from where we set up tents at dusk, it’s more of a community camp site, there was no areas to set up our tents because the grass was so tall, we had to set them up on top of tall grass which had bugs and spiders, There was garbage from previous campers prior to our arrival. I was not stoked but made it work, the sat-sun no one was there so we were able to enjoy the area but would not recommend or come back. On a positive note it’s nice and secluded.

Good spot but needs maintenance
Loved the spot & everything provided, but the sites need some maintenance. Not much space for multiple parties; tall grass and foliage made it hard to find spots to tent.

No problem finding Site 1 using the directions and my maps app. Very secluded location in a beautiful area.

Beautiful private camp, needs some.
It was a beautiful area, and very nice to have a private camp. It was very hard to find in the dark, and the roads were pretty rough. Chris was responsive when we reached out. The campground needed some maintenance, as the drive way was overgrown and hard to find, and the water tanks were empty. Do have the bug spray at the ready for when you get out, because the mosquitoes are very happy to welcome you. We did hear a pack of coyotes nearby each night, so keep your pets safe. Unfortunately my husband was allergic to the yellow flowers which covered the area, and so his allergies were very bad when there. There were other wild flowers, which were beautiful, like wild roses, wild geraniums and asters, and pink pussy toes, which I haven’t seen for a long time. The Aspens were lovely, and the stars were breathtaking.
