We traveled around Bear Lake with beautiful views on the lake and mountains and decided to stay overnight at Garden city. It has couple places to stay if you travel not in RV - one of them The Blue Water Resort, which includes RV station as well.. Resort is very close to lake, considering you like any water activities, including...

They have small out dated facilities that don't work properly. They will call you after to try to charge you more for their cheap sheets and towels for things like makeup stains they can't get out. They accused our group of not renting enough rooms because we had people staying at other locations; our group even had 7 reservations filled...

We are sorry that you feel this way, yet I would like to clear-up a few things. Initially 15 rooms were booked either under your name or persons in your group. You then cancelled 10 of them letting us know you found cheaper accommodations elsewhere. You only rented 5 rooms with us that accommodated 35 people. Five days before you...

The area around Bear Lake is clearly a popular place both for visitors and holiday home buyers and there is lots of new housing going up. The hotel reception was welcoming and the hotel was clean and the room was huge with plenty of storage area. It was Memorial Weekend when we stayed and the RV park located in the...

My wife and I have been coming here for years. My wife's family are members so, it makes reservation easier to set up. This campground is well taken care of, beach front, hotel, cottages, full hook ups for RV, and flat spots for tents.

Stayed in the hotel next to the beach. Gorgeous view. Happy to discover there was a nice hot jacuzzi after a long bike ride around the lake. Beautiful campground, can't wait to bring the kids next time around.

Stayed here one night while driving from Jackson Hole back to So Cal. I got one of the two cabins they have. It was very nice. It had two queen beds, in room air conditioning, and a private bathroom. The resort has amenities such as a pool, basketball courts and a boat rental. We arrived at 2 a.m., and they...

We have been members for the past 4-5 years & our parents guests long before that. We only have time to come once maybe twice a year. We are members, we pay our dues, we even call ahead but every time. We get stuck in the worst sites everytime! We are told the camp is full. What's the point of...

We had one of the condos at this place. It was simple and yes the TV was old an very small but we didn't want to watch it anyway. The rooms were small but not cramped. I don't mind staying somewhere simple and basic if it's clean and this was very clean, nice bath/shower - also clean. The kitchen was...

I am so unimpressed with this place. After taxes and fees we paid rough $300 per night for their "hotel." First of all, this place is a campground. Your "hotel" is literally next to trailers and tents. The room itself has an old box TV that is maybe 20-25 inches at most and you can barely see it. The AC...

After trying to stay at the Ideal Beach Resort and having a bad experience, we ended up driving down the road again a bit further and stayed at the Blue Water. For the same price we were treated with honesty and respect here from the get-go and they had a hotel room ready right away- the grounds were super clean...
