Fish Haven,[1] originally named Rush Creek, is an unincorporated community along the shores of Bear Lake in Bear Lake County, Idaho, United States. It is 4 km (2.5 miles) north of the Utah border.

History[edit]

The first settlement at Fish Haven was made in 1864.[2] A post office called Fish Haven was established in 1867, and remained in operation until 1962.[3] The community was so named because nearby Bear Lake is a favorite fishing spot.[2]
