Hero: Bear Canyon Lake
small-sr Icon

Bear Canyon Lake provides access to the alpine lake of the same name. The easy trail passes through a pine, fir, and aspen forest while crossing Willow Creek at Mule Crossing. The lake is only partially visible from the parking areas and accessible only by a steep hike, but it is very popular with fishermen.

Camping in the vicinity of the lake is in numbered designated sites only. The sites near the lake share two vault toilets. Outside the lake area, there are nice dispersed campsites. RV, camper trailers, and tent campers can all find suitable sites.
