Bear Paw is a secluded and private area, but has many amenities which
make it a great vacation spot. Boating, fishing, swimming, and
water-skiing are possible. The lake is large enough that it is never
crowded. There are 2 marinas near to rent boats if you don’t have one,
and 2 launch ramps if you do. Bear Paw also offers other activities
other than the lake.
There is an Olympic size swimming pool with chaise lounges, basketball
hoops in the Pavilion/Club House, tennis court, exercise room,
children’s playground, a small fishing pond and a security guard at
the entrance gate 24 hours a day.
Nearby is the dam with picnicking and grills, tours of the dam are
possible, and a drive through the area brings activities as
white-water rafting, golfing, horseback riding, or sightseeing from
nearby Ocoee, Chattanooga, Helen, or up to the Asheville area.
