“Very scenic and close to the road”
Review of Boulder Bay Park

The boulders are certainly a big part in and near the park, which is right off the road into the Big Bear Lake region. You can fish, kayak, walk, run or just take pictures like we did - very scenic all along the park which hugs the bay.

This was a lovely place to stop and take in the beauty of Big Bear lake. We drove around the lake & stopped here for a bit. Took lots of pictures. There are restrooms, benches to sit on and a nice grassy area. Very nice! Would highly recommend stoping here.

It's just a real pretty place to walk and get a great view of the lake. It's nice to take the kids and the pets to stroll and walk down the dock over the water.

Easy access, with fishing pier. You can rent kayak's nearby, and launch from this park. There was algae in the water near the shore, so it wouldn't be good for swimming here. Maybe if the lake was up, it wouldn't be bad.

This tiny park was created for chillaxin, taking pictures, and fishing… no other reasons are needed.
Short, squat boulders rest near the paths that criss-cross this park. In this small place, I always see at least 5 other people just relaxing on the grass snoozing, reading a book, or possibly meditating on the view because they forgot a camera.

Not only is this located near Big Bear Lake, but the views of the rounded boulders jutting up from the water is beautiful. The tiny pier is frequented by fishermen, but is also an ideal location to take photos of that little island made of boulders yards away.

It doesn’t look like you can launch water craft or go swimming at the park itself, but due to its proximity to marina-like area, I’m sure it’s easy enough to leave your car at this park and drag your butt to a different launching location.
