Sunrise Campground, Bear Lake, Utah

Sunrise Campground

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest / Logan Ranger District

There's a reason for the campground name!  Sunrise Campground gets the early morning sun although each site is shaded differently.  At 7800' the campground is set in a mixed conifer and aspen forest providing nice separation between sites and partial shade.  Campground roads and parking spurs are paved.  Drinking water and vault toilets are provided.  Wildflowers and wildlife are abundant in the summer.

Enjoy interpretive displays, picnic tables and a breath-taking view of the often turquois-colored Bear Lake at the Bear Lake Summit; a mile away.  Visitors enjoy boating, fishing and scuba diving on Bear Lake just 6 miles down the highway.

Camping families also enjoy the Limber Pine Trail which starts just a half-mile from the campground.  This is a 1 mile loop trail that is perfect for families and leads to a 500 year old Limber Pine.

If you are looking for a fun day-trip go to Minnetonka Caves, about 23 miles from the campground, on the northwest side of Bear Lake.  Drive north from Garden City, UT to St Charles, ID and follow the signs.  But don't pass up all those fresh raspberry shakes along the way!
