Snapshot virtual tour
Welcome to the Bear Head Lake State Park virtual tour! In this journey you'll peek inside a camper cabin, meander along the Blueberry Lake hiking trail and check out a few of our many great fishing spots. We hope it prompts you to visit the park in person sometime soon.
This is the Bear Head Lake State Park headquarters, the first building you will see when you come to visit the park.
Interior of the Bear Head Lake State Park headquarters, where the park office is located. Stop inside to register for campsites, find information on the area, or browse the nature store.
Bear Head Lake's beach and picnic areas are very popular places for both campers and daily visitors. The beach is particularly sandy and shallow, making it a great location for both kids and adults to swim.
Bear Head Lake
More than one three-pound walleye has been caught from this small dock by the picnic area. Be sure to take in the breathtaking views of our serene, undeveloped northern lake.
Bear Head Lake's fishing pier is a wonderful spot to bring young anglers. Keep your eye out for snapping turtles that like to compete against you for panfish! Right next to the pier is our boat launch and boat rental area.
Norberg Lake is one of Bear Head Lake State Park's two designated trout lakes, and is conveniently located near the hiking paths. If you're after brook trout, this is the place to be! It's especially good for winter fishing.
Cub Lake is the other of Bear Head Lake State Park's two designated trout lakes. A little off the beaten path, it provides an even more secluded experience than Norberg Lake.
Bear Head Lake State Park has five camper cabins, each with its own picnic table and fire pit. The camper cabins are conveniently located near a set of docks in the north bay of Bear Head Lake.
Camper cabin interior
Inside the camper cabins, you'll find a table, screened porch, bunk beds, and electric outlets. All cabins are comfortably heated for the cooler months of the year.
Bear Head Lake State Park has a total of 73 back-in sites for tents and RVs. In the campground, you'll also find a fish cleaning shack and seasonally-available shower buildings to make your stay even more comfortable.
There are several small docks like this one located around the campground for use by all visitors.
View from group campsite
The group campsite has a commanding view of Bear Head Lake's east bay. It is a beautiful spot for gatherings of up to fifty people. The group camp comes complete with a water pump, bear boxes for food storage, picnic tables, and outhouses.
Bear Head Lake State Park's most remote backpack sites are located on the shores of Blueberry Lake. The backpack sites are equipped with latrines and fire pits, and if you arrive at the right time of year, you'll discover just why this lake has been named after a berry! The Blueberry Lake hiking trail takes you through some wonderfully picturesque stands of pine, birch, and even a little cedar, if you know where to look. Keep your eyes open and you will see lots of different birds, animals and plants.
Eagle's Nest boat ramp
Another option for boaters within the park is Eagle's Nest, a very popular lake for walleye, bass and northerns. The boat access is a short drive inside the park boundary.
