We went there for Octoberfest ((which was REALLY bad, by the way)) and thank goodness the town was so cute because otherwise I would have been disappointed

There is so much things to do on the lake. It is fun for the family that is active or a family who just want to relax.

Beautiful lake but under the surface going downhill because of uncontrolled plant growth in the water limiting where boats can go close to shore. This has gotten progressively worse. Apparently the source is fertilizer. Possibly due to ski resort runoff going into the lake and not enough action being taken to preserve the lake. People were complaining about the fishing not being good as we talked to the fishermen on the lake.

I love Big Bear. Been going since I was a kid. It's most known for skiing and boating/fishing on the lake, but I love going in spring time for great hiking and relaxation in a quiet cabin. There's also a cute little town with great shopping and boutiques, and some killer restaurants. Great for family weekends, romantic getaways, or a trip with friends who love the outdoors!

I was fortunate to wake up to a view of Big Bear Lake each morning of my stay, and could not help but feel blessed. The water level was down in the area I was walking and viewing, but still it's lovely.
