Discover Big Bear Lake, CA


The peaceful community of Big Bear Lake is a magnificent little resort area in Southern California. Approximately 100 miles from downtown Los Angeles, and around 40 miles from San Bernardino, this rural paradise is popular all year round for its stunning scenery and refreshing lakeside recreation. The town is so popular in fact, that the population is said to swell to over 100,000 on certain weekends throughout the year.

The town was home to Serrano natives for 2,000 years before the arrival of settlers during the Gold Rush, which brought high numbers of people from back east. Now this gem of a town is located in the dead center of the rugged San Bernardino National Forest, which is a glorious attraction in its own right. In addition to its role as a summertime destination, people also flock to Big Bear Lake in winter time for its epic skiing and snowboarding. The Big Bear Lake International Film Festival is another reason to book an RV in Big Bear Lake and enjoy the festivities and indie film screenings. Big Bear Lake does after all have a glamorous history of being a filming destination for Hollywood productions, so that should say everything that needs to be said about the amazing little resort town.

Experience the Sites and Scenery

There are a couple of charming resort-town parks, beaches, and even a few skate and BMX parks in Big Bear Lake, so you are covered when it comes to outdoor recreation. After all, this is the reason why most people journey to the mountain town on vacation and rent an RV. Ski Beach Park has marvelous white-sand beaches along the lakeside, with great swimming areas and large inflatable water park obstacle courses, a feature that children love. Meadow Park is also situated close to the water, and has wide open grassy fields, tennis courts, basketball hoops, and picnic pavilions for all to use.

Big Bear Lake is ideally located in the middle of a national forest, so there is so much to do in the area that you hardly need to drive anywhere in your Big Bear Lake camper rental. The San Jacinto, San Bernardino, San Gabriel, and Santa Rosa Mountain Ranges are found in the sprawling 800,000-acre forest, with high mountain peaks reaching over 11,000 feet in height. Lake Arrowhead is another large lake located within the confines of San Bernardino National Forest where you can take your Big Bear Lake RV rental to swim, fish, or go boating.

Angeles National Forest is adjacent to San Bernardino and north of the Los Angeles metro area, and has several fantastic campgrounds for you to stay at when you book an RV rental near Big Bear Lake. The beauty of these high mountain campgrounds is their breathtaking views overlooking the valley, and their proximity to the big city. The forest is home to five backcountry wilderness areas, over 60 campgrounds, ski areas in the wintertime, and over 700,000 acres of mountainous land.

It would be a travesty to omit Joshua Tree National Park from your travel plans when you rent an RV in Big Bear Lake. The serene and bizarre landscapes at Joshua Tree are unlike anything else, and it is teeming with the iconic trees the park gets its name from. Stargazing, rock climbing, and bouldering are the reason many visit the desert landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park. You can also check out Death Valley National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, and Sequoia National Park, none of which are too far away, and all quite easy to find in your Big Bear Lake motorhome rental if you feel like leaving town.
