Big Bear Lake is the perfect year-round destination, as it offers activities for every kind of outdoor enthusiast.

Nestled away in the San Bernardino Mountains in southern California, about 2 hours from Los Angeles, is where you will find the gorgeous escape of Big Bear Lake. Big Bear received its name, not surprisingly, due to the fact that grizzly bears used to roam the region long ago. The grizzlies aren’t there anymore, though you might see the occasional black bear around. Aside from bears, you might also see bobcats, deer, chipmunks, and sometimes foxes. One of the more popular hikes in the area is Castle Rock Trail, which is 2.6 miles, moderate difficulty, and provides immaculate views of Big Bear Lake. If snow sports are more up your alley, there are two great mountains with over 55 runs available. The best time of year to go for winter fun is between November and April.

In the summer, Big Bear provides endless lake fun. Many enjoy boating, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and fishing during this time. Fall in the valley creates the perfect autumn getaway to get in some hikes and visit a local pumpkin patch. In the winter, Big Bear Lake is a favorite destination for snowboarding and skiing. In the spring, the valley bursts with vibrant wildflowers that make for perfect photo ops. Big Bear Lake also offers a variety of cabins available for rent during your stay, which will provide you with the ultimate Big Bear experience.
