Bear Lake is a 20-mile long, eight-mile wide, and 208-foot deep lake in northern Utah. Known for its turquoise waters, Bear Lake State Park is a popular place for fishing, boating, and water sports. The park has three distinct recreation areas: Bear Lake Marina, East Side, and Rendezvous Beach. While here, you can enjoy fishing, snowmobiling, sailing, water skiing and wakeboarding, and nearby ATV trails. There are also several campgrounds that you can call home for a night or two.The Logan Canyon Scenic Byway goes from Logan to Garden City and offers both spectacular scenery and access to great recreation areas. Starting at the mouth of Logan Canyon, the roadway snakes near almost vertical limestone walls and rock formations. On many turns, the gorgeous Logan River parallels the road, giving visitors yet another reason to pull over and check out the scene. Boasting lush forests, high mountain passages, and sweeping views of Bear Lake’s turquoise waters, see what you discover along the Logan Canyon Scenic Byway when you book an RV rental.When you decide to camp in an RV near Garden City, a trip to Minnetonka Cave is definitely in order.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
