About This Activity

Do you dare swim with the Bear Lake Monster?

The Bear Lake Monster Swim is a 7-mile point-to-point swim across the width of Bear Lake.  The swim is open to solo swimmers and 2 to 6-person relay teams.  All solo swimmers must provide their own support paddler.  Relay teams are responsible for providing their own support craft, large enough to hold all team members. We recommend Cisco's Landing for boat rentals.

Swimmers will receive a parking pass via email that will need to be displayed in their vehicle.  Swimmers will meet at the Bear Lake State Park Marina in Garden City for check-in, body marking, packet pickup, etc.  The swim will start in the water just north of the Bear Lake Marina and will on the opposite side of the lake at Cisco Beach.

Bear Lake Lodging is offering a 10% discount when you book your stay over the phone and mention the Bear Lake Monster Swim.
