Bear Lake State Park is a state park of Idaho, USA, along the shore of Bear Lake. The park is located in southern Bear Lake County near the border with Utah and Wyoming. There is a separate Bear Lake State Park on the southern shore in Utah.
The park consists of two separate units along the shore of Bear Lake. The north unit, along the north shore of the lake, is for day use only. The east unit, along the eastern shore of the lake, provides day use and overnight camping with electrical hook-ups. Each unit provides a beach over 1 mile (1.6 km) in length. The beach access in both units are popular destinations for summer water recreation on the lake. The gradual slope of the lake bottom provides a large swimming area. The park also provides winter access to the lake for the popular runs of Bonneville cisco. The Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located alongside the lake near the north unit. The park office is located in nearby Montpelier, approximately 20 miles (32 km) north.
