Description

There are a few campgrounds to choose from in Bear Lake State park, and each sits on the shores of beautiful Bear Lake (obvi). The lake is a mesmerizing blue-green color, a result of calcium carbonates suspended in the lake–whatever that means! Spend the day on the water, paddling around on your kayak, fishing, or swimming.

The Cottonwood Campground within Bear Lake State Park appears to be an old group site that was hastily converted into individual campgrounds. The tent sites are close, like stretch-out-your-arms-and-touch-your-neighbor-close, and there's very little privacy. The CG is billed as having trailer sites, but by "site" they mean "parking space", and you'll literally have to put your trailer between two yellow lines, and hope no one takes the spot next to you.

Beach access is close, the restrooms are relatively clean, and the on-site dishwashing stations are handy (albeit gross). The CG gets its namesake from the plentiful cottonwood trees, so if you have allergies you're better off in a different site. Bring bug spray in early-spring.
