Welcome to the Bear Lake/Trail Side KOA Journey!

Beautiful 20-mile-long Bear Lake is the undisputed star at this KOA. Build sandcastles, take 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. Explore the local area in nearby Garden City, stores celebrate the region's raspberry crop with jams, syrups and yummy shakes, and the Pickleville Playhouse features a Western-style cookout with a family theater show. The Logan Canyon Scenic Byway weaves southwest from Garden City through mountain forests and wildflower meadows.
Back at the campground, relax by the campfire at your RV, Tent or Camping Cabin site. The campground features amenities and recreation including Kamp K9 for off leash fun for your furry companions, a playground, a jump zone, basketball court and a general store stocked with camping essentials.
