Purden Lake Resort

When it's time for a break from the ordinary


Purden Lake is a beautiful mountain lake. It is nestled directly below Purden Ski Village. In the past it was called Bear Lake because of its still abundant wildlife.
Purden Lake Resort offers
cabins, camping, swimming, fishing and many other summer activities. Stay a day or awhile, but stay long enough to witness those amazing Purden Lake Sunsets. It is a wonderful place to get away from the ordinary.

We have a spot that is perfect for your weekend get-away or summer vacation. Choose from a stunning lakefront site, or a quieter non-lakefront site. Most sites have power, water and sewer for your camping comfort .
Our cabins are modern, fully self-contained with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorabe.
