    Since you asked

    That hostel's name is

    The hostel is the Standing Bear Farm. If all you need is a shower, it's perfectly adequate.

    No camping around the lake -- period

    > I heard there was no camping around the lake.
    You heard correctly.

    > Is this due to the close proximity to a bear sanctuary?

  18. Not exactly

    Sadly, that part you'll have to handle yourself.
    All they can provide is lodging, dinner, breakfast, and a box lunch -- any and all for a price.
    Slackpacking to the extreme.
