Most visitors to the American West tend toward the national parks for their nature fix. Though Yellowstone, Glacier, and other parks are magnificent and should not be missed, consider adding on some lesser known spots to your itinerary as well! Located on the border between Utah and Idaho, Bear Lake is a large freshwater lake known for having water as blue as the Caribbean. There are endless opportunities to sail, boat, fish, and swim. On a vacation to this remote location, you might think you have to decide between a hotel and camping, but that’s not the case with more and more upscale camping spots cropping up! Read on for our top picks of the best glamping rentals in and around Bear Lake.

1. Caribou yurt

This charming and cozy yurt is a great place to glamp in all seasons! The yurt is insulated and has a wood stove inside for winter months. Located on top of a secluded hill, you can sled right outside of the yurt or go to one of the local ski resorts like Pebble Creek and Caribou. In the summertime, the yurt receives cool mountain breezes and has even more activities right around it. The host can set up a trampoline, you can hike on nearby trails, or roast marshmallows on the fire pit while gazing at the stunning Milky Way in the sky. With television, DVDs, and a microwave, this place won’t feel like your average rustic camping trip— the host even provides a daily homemade breakfast!

5. Brighton Glamping in a peaceful wood

Glamping can range from a luxurious accommodation with all the comforts of home to a rustic affair just a step above sleeping in a tent. This cabin tends toward the latter end of that spectrum, but if you are an outdoorsy person up for an adventure it might just be for you! This platform tent is most comfortable for two people and many call it a romantic getaway. It has a wood stove inside and a fire pit outside and the host provides all the ingredients for making s’mores! Guests should be aware that the closest bathroom is less than a mile (less than a kilometer) away at the visitor center. If you’re willing to live a little further off the grid for a few days, you’ll find yourself rewarded with a serene setting and wildlife sightings — lookout for moose, elk, and even porcupines!
