Bear Lake is a 28.7 acre seepage lake located in rolling hills near the glacial moraine six miles southwest of Amherst in the Town of Stockton. Data from the 1970s and 1980s indicate that BearLake was a moderately hard lake, but hardness measured in the lake water in the 2000s reveal a significant drop in total hardness with the lake now categorized as a soft water lake. Littoral bottom materials are mostly muck and sand, with a maximum lake depth of 30 feet. The shoreline length is 1 mile. Much of the shoreline of Bear Lake is undeveloped with steep slopes on the north and south shores, and Standing Rocks Park located just off the southwest shore. Largemouth bass and panfish are the most common fish species present.
