Map of Bear Lake


State/County/Province: Idaho and Utah (United States of America)

Type: Lake

Bear Lake is located on the border of Utah and Idaho and is ideal for marathon swimming with the clean and beautiful blue water. The lake is at an elevation of 5,924 feet (1,806 m). Its area is approximately 109 square miles (282 kmĀ²). Because of its higher elevation its water temperature is typically much colder than many other lakes situated in the Wasatch Front. Due to its size, it is not as congested with ski boats and other fast moving watercraft, as other smaller reservoirs in the area. This makes Bear Lake an ideal place for a marathon swim!

An official Bear Lake Marathon swim event is held every summer where successful swimmers are added to this Wall of Fame!
