Was really disappointed there was very few places to actually get to the beach. The place the ranch sent us was a long walk and was only a small area on the beach.

We often travel up to Bear Lake in the summer to spend a day on Rendevous Beach. We rent wave runners and bring beach toys, canopy, and camp chairs with a cooler full of sandwiches and fruit. Its always a fun place to go!

It was a hot day and we decided to stop here alongside the lake and get some of the breeze blowing in. The locals and tourists were enjoying their picnics and we really loved our Raspberry ice-cream. It was very refreshing. Try it.

We stayed at KOA Garden city. Lots of shade and activities but wouldn't say beauty. It was very clean and well kept and convenient to the city.
