My kids began asking, why don't we have a cabin?? Such a great getaway for a few days, a winter wonderland, and rented some snowmobiles. That said, you need to know that there really isn't much of a restaurant on property, and it really isn't in Kamas. It's just that Kamas may be the nearest town. But in winter, you...

We had stayed twice before. Latest experience was terrible. Receptionist was very polite but the manager was shockingly rude and even engaged in name-calling. No customer service skills, zero ability to deal with even a minor confrontation. I've never been treated like that. Our whole family was planning a stay, now none of us will ever come back.

It is increasingly common for Customers to threaten to use negative reviews if they do not get their way. This customer used a promo code valid for next day reservations. The actual promo code is called "Tomorrrow". He tried to use it for a reservation this coming June, nearly 80 days in advance. The system kicked it out so we...

Bear River Lodge is a sham. There is no lodge! only rental cabins and a convenience store/Grill that is rarely open. They promised us a refund if the ATV was not used then wouldn't kept our full rental price. They DON'T honor their promises. I have never dealt with a more dishonest greedy Owner Roger Eggett is not about customer...

Again, another Customer who wishes to avoid the facts. I am Roger Eggett and she called me out in this review. Here is the actual transaction. This customer paid for a joneymoon stay for her son. On the day of the ATV rental he did not want to go. He said his wife was not feeling well. Although we typically...

Took our second guys trip to the lodge and the experience was just as good as the first. The machines were in tip top shape. The cabin was exceptionally clean and comfortable and staff was exceptionally accommodating. Amber, Kendra, Jake and Jose made sure we had an exceptional time and took wonderful care of us, even when we were a...

The cabins associated with the Bear River lodge were beautiful, clean, and provided a gorgeous view. It was perfect for our group with a good size dining table that accommodated the larger group at meals.

Let me start off my review by saying that this is a fun place to go with the amazing views, and all of the ATV trails around, as well as good times spent in the cabin with the family. However, as far as the lodge itself, and the customer service, the most I can give them is 1 star. I...

Lance M, I am not sure where to start. It appears that you had problems with most everything we do. I am sorry for this. We clearly fall short at times. I believe you had a new employee in training who checked out your machine. I apologize. Training new employees is a challenge and they clearly want to do a...

I recently rented two ATVs. When I signed the rental agreement, I initialed in several places. They said it was to ensure I knew I was responsible for any damage. That is all they said. They showed me a price sheet of what everything costs, so I decided to buy insurance. A few hours into the day one of the...

bearriverlodge, Owner at The Bear River Lodge, responded to this review

John A. I appreciate your review. However, I feel it is necessary to clarify a few issues. I am guessing that about 90% or more of our machines, both snowmobiles and ATVs, come back without any damage. If someone does damage a machine we charge for three items: 1) Actual cost of parts and labor to return the machine to...

It was a great experience from the moment I called ahead on the phone to when I arrived and was greeted by the staff. Everyone was very professional and courteous.

Bear River Lodge has really stepped it up a notch. We haven't been for a couple of years but their new cabins are stellar. Such a fun place to go and really close to Salt Lake City. Their snowmobiles were in great shape for this late in the season. A really fun family weekend.

This is our third trip to the cabins, Our first was late spring, it was warm enough to set on the deck and grill our salmon while we enjoyed the sunset, and view in a sweater. and there was enough snow to slip away the next day on the snowmobiles to Mirror Lake and picnic all alone. Our second trip...
