Big Bear Lake is one of Southern Calif's premier four-season resorts. The 2017 season promises to be the best we have seen in years. The lake is up over five feet from last year and we still have a lot more snow in the mountains that will produce good runoff, filling the lake even more. The six marina's have everything you need to have a great time on the lake. The City of Big Bear Lake boasts a beautiful shopping and entertainment district on the Lake, with over 120 local vendors.
