Throughout the year at Idaho Only, we talk a lot about water – where to find it, how to play in it, how to dine near it, and even how beautiful it is just glimmering in our lakes and rivers. This particular lake is an incredibly special destination, however. Often referred to as the “Caribbean of the Rockies,” Bear Lake is a unique getaway that houses much more than meets the eye as well as the absolute bluest water in Idaho. Perfect for picnicking, sunset catching, photography, and so much more, let’s explore this overlooked gem, shall we?
