The beaches at Bear Lake are maintained by the Bear Valley Residents Inc. If you wish to use the Lake and are not already members of BVRI, then you should consider joining.If you wish to join BVRI, check out the Membership section of this website. The lake and beach are for all members and their guests to enjoy, and everyone is encouraged to help promote and enhance this beautiful Alpine environment.

These rules have been updated by the BVRI Board which is responsible for the activities related to the lake. It is important that we keep our lake clean and healthy.
Please take the time to read our Lake Manual 2015 for maintaining the beauty of Bear Lake.
All boats left at Bear Lake must be registered with BVRI using the Boat Registration Form. Boats must be clearly labeled with the owner’s name and phone number. Boats should be stored neatly on or in front of the storage rack (at the main beach). They should be stored in an orderly fashion at the smaller beach. Please remember others when you store your boats so that everyone can access their own when they come to the lake. All boats must be removed from the lake by October 31. Any boats left after that date will be removed or disposed of.
If you are interested in using Bear Lake for a special event, you must complete the Application for Usage of Bear Valley’s Private Beaches form.
Please note that even if there is a private party, BVRI members will still be allowed to use the beach. For a private party, the following is required: (1) a signed contract; and (2) a $200.00 charge will be assessed ($100.00 to be returned if the beach is left in good and clean condition).
