Bear Lake / Trail Side KOA

Welcome to the Bear Lake / Trail Side KOA!

Beautiful 20-mile-long Bear Lake is the undisputed star at this new KOA. Build sandcastles, wade in for a swim or launch a kayak or paddleboard in the lake's remarkable turquoise waters. Boats and personal watercraft have an easy launch about 2 miles away. Take your off-road vehicles on nearby trails or explore the backcountry on a guided horseback ride. At KOA, relax on a large level Pull-Thru RV Site, Back-In RV Site or a roomy Tent Site. A playground and basketball court also entertain guests. In nearby Garden City, local stores celebrate the region's raspberry crop with jams, syrups and yummy shakes, and the Pickleville Playhouse features a Western-style cookout and family theater show. The Logan Canyon Scenic Byway weaves southwest from Garden City through mountain forests and wildflower meadows. Oregon Trail pioneers in American history come to life at the National Oregon/California Trail Center, 30 miles north in Montpelier, Idaho. Max pull thru: 70 feet.
