Bear Lake County

Native Americans frequented the Bear Lake Valley for a long time. Traveling bands of the Shoshone, Ute, and Bannock tribes identified it as one of the best hunting areas. For people going on hunting excursions, it was a popular camping location.

Early in 1818, mountain men arrived to the region to go hunting and trapping. Due to the high density of black bears in the region, Donald "Fats" McKenzie christened Bear Lake "Black Bear Lake" while attending one of the Indian gatherings at the southern end of Bear Lake in 1819. In 1827 and 1828, there were two documented meetings. To trade furs and products, Indians, suppliers, and trappers convened. These meetings included Jim Bridger and Jedediah Smith. In 1842, John C. Fremont passed through the region. He and Captain Bonneville documented their findings of Bear Lake Valley in their writings. Many of the nearby mountain peaks, canyons, and streams were given names by Fremont.

In the early years of the trail, Thomas L. "Peg Leg" Smith ran a trading post where people traveling the route could exchange goods and animals. To the southeast of Montpelier, close to Dingle, stood his trading post. The first Mormon settlers were sent to the valley by Brigham Young in 1863, under the direction of Charles C. Rich. Using the valley's timber, water, and other resources, they founded the town of Paris.

The Oregon Trail, the railroad, and Bear Lake County's pioneer history all had a big impact on the region. Due to its lengthy winters, population is constrained.
