"Crossroads at South End of Bear Lake, UT" Laketown by atufft

Laketown Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 13 photos

Bear Lake and Laketown are remote places

Take the US 30 north exit off I-80 in Wyoming and head toward Pocatello, ID. This is a long and windy remote drive by itself within the northwest corner of Wyoming, but the pavement is normally good even in winter. Like much of Wyoming, the landscape is mostly scrub brush high desert. Then, at WY 89, head west. This ribbon highway will become UT30, and it will eventually wind down through a steep canyon toward Bear Lake. I drove my truck by this route when heading to Richmond, UT. Fortunately, I had a very light load. I was very impressed with this natural lake though, and would recommend this route for those who want to get off the beaten path.

Commercial Stop for Boaters

There's a general store, restaurant, and filling station in Lake Town, and that's about it. Most the residents are Mormon ranchers and hay farmers. There's a school here too, so I was told by the folks in the general store.
