Bear Lake Water Level and Lake Access

Beach Access for 2017: The lake level will come up during the Spring and a good part of the summer due to the high spring runoff. The amount of runoff will likely be a lot this year, and most of the low-water beaches currently exposed most likely will be covered up. You may not be able to drive on the beach at North Beach and Rendezvous Beach as has been allowed the last few years, and all parking will most likely be above the high water mark of the lake.

There are many boat launching facilities available around the lake. For 2017, the locations to launch watercraft at Bear Lake that have concrete ramps are at the Utah State Marina in Garden City, the East side at First Point, Cisco Beach, and Rainbow Cove, the North Beach State Park, and at Rendezvous Beach when the water level is within 5 feet of full.

If you would like to enjoy watercraft at Bear Lake but don’t want to deal with launching, we offer 4 on-site rental locations where we have boats and Seadoos in the water ready to go for your convenience. No launching required.
