Have been exploring Bryce Four Season Resort over the past year. The area is so peaceful and uncongested which allows a relaxing mountain respite. Lake Laura is a Beautiful, calm, serene mountain lake.

On our first day of vacation we enjoyed the paddle boating and swimming. Granddaughters ages 9 & 17 liked the swimming, going back and forth to the rafts. Adults enjoyed sitting in the Sun. There is a small snack shack, where we got lunch.

I've been coming here with my family since I was a kid. Basically, it's a giant lake. You can swim, lay out on the "beach," and hike around the lake. We also go fishing and hunt for frogs, snakes, turtles, etc. It is pretty deep,...More
