Review from Jennifer

Bear Mountain is beautiful - so scenic and relaxing! The boat ride however is a different story. There are not enough seats for everyone on board because the staff does nothing to prevent people from saving extra seats for themselves or using the...continued

Beautiful ride up to Bear Mountain. It was cold, so be sure to bring appropriate attire. Bear Mountain is very relaxing and the lake is lovely. The Octoberfest was a little disappointing. The beer was great, but the food was not very good. I...continued

Review from Bonnie

Beautiful views, it was very cold and windy. I loved it, but I will drive up next time. Boat ride was 3 hours and you have 3 hours once you're there, so you're trying to rush through things and the lines for food and beer are so long most of your...continued

Boat is a terrible experience. Very crowded and extremely noisy. Chairs are collapsing foldable chairs that are uncomfortable-people move them around and blockade the walkway creating fire hazard. Cant hear the tourguide downstairs bc its too...continued

Cruise to Bear Mountain. . . Let me first say we had a beautiful day to enjoy it. The boat ride was very long- recommend sitting on the top level on the back deck- much better experience. Once we got there, there were no signs directing us so most...continued

Good tour guide...informative but difficult to hear him if one was downstairs out of the cold! Sun came out later...a very enjoyable day...though hardly luxury accommodations.

Great day out and beautiful views. Perhaps the walk up to the top of the hill might be a little difficult for physically challenged people but just walk slowly and you can get there.

Great deal from Goldstar, day trip to Bear Mountain. Great narration during the ride by professional guide. Drinks and food a bit overpriced.
Left on Oct 14, so foliage was not quite there yet, but still got some nice colours along the Lake at...continued
