Activities

There is so much to do at Black Bear Lodges. You can rest on the beach with a good book, fish off the end of our dock, relax by the campfire or enjoy a game or two in the yard. The choice is yours! We have kayaks & life vests available if you’d like to take a paddle on Fourth Lake. Spend time enjoying our sandy beach and swim area. End your day watching the sunset in our Adirondack chairs.
We are conveniently located near several wonderful hiking trails. If you prefer to bike, bring them or rent some locally. For the golf fans, Inlet has a wonderful golf course a short drive away. Inlet has great shopping and dining options too. We’ve got it all!
