Depending on how much spring runoff there is each year is what determines how much beach there will be exposed at Bear Lake. If there isn’t much spring runoff which fills the lake with water each year, then there will be more beaches exposed during the summer. If there’s been drought conditions for the previous several years, then it means the water level will be even lower than normal. If the lake reaches a certain low level, then there are beaches at Bear Lake where driving your car and parking on the beach is allowed such as at our Rendezvous Beach and North Beach Rental locations. Regardless of the lake level each year, Bear Lake has become very popular and you should arrive early in the morning to get a parking spot.
