At this St. Charles intersection, dubbed Bear Cave Corner, you’ll find the Bear Cave Drive-in, home of the Bear Cave Monster (two quarter-pound top sirloin beef patties with ham and cheese); and the Bear Cave General store, catering to the beach and camping set. Before heading over to Bear Lake’s north shore, stop at the drive-in for lunch and refreshments, and explore the store for beach and camping supplies. At the end of the season, on Labor Day weekend, the store throws a big garage sale. Stop by on your way through St. Charles and pick up some bargains on food and beach items and lots of other miscellaneous treasures.
Open Memorial Day to Labor Day. Closed Sundays
