“Bear Lake has thousands of people flood in during the summer from the outlying areas, but not for the reason you might think. Sure Bear Lake has great boating, beaches, and views. The thing that sets Bear Lake apart is their RASPBERRY SHAKES. These raspberry shakes will blow your mind. Our favorite spot in town for raspberry shakes (there are 7) is Zips. Zips has THE BEST raspberry shakes, really cool vintage decor, and amazing food to boot. Don't miss out on this one. ”

Park
“Garden City Park leads to Garden City Beach and is the closest public beach (with restroom & parking) to the beach house. On the far end of the park, there is a boardwalk that leads down to the beach. There is parking there so you don’t have as far to walk to the beach. Along the boardwalk are a few interpretive signs about wetlands. After following the boardwalk, you will come out into the open and see the beach. There are bathrooms, as well as a rental shack for paddle boards and kayaks. It is still quite a walk down to the beach. If you have a lot of supplies you might want a wagon or stroller which will easily move across the sand. The other great thing about the lake is that the beach is very shallowly sloped. This means that the water doesn’t get deep fast. This makes it awesome for kids. It also means that the water is much warmer than it would be if it were deeper. This is true for almost all the beaches at Beat Lake and for the beach directly in front of the Beach House. In short, the beach at Bear Lake is incredible! ”
