Big Bear Lake travel tips

Which neighborhoods in Big Bear Lake should I stay in if I want access to public transport?

Being a touristy resort town, there are several Big Bear Lake hotels, but the public transportation options are a bit sparser. Visitors are encouraged to use their own vehicles or secured vehicle rentals while in the area if they’re hoping to find the trail heads. There are also local taxis and ride-share options.

Where to stay in Big Bear Lake

What neighborhood in Big Bear Lake should I stay in based on why I’m traveling?

There are several residential areas to the north and east of the lake, so if you’re traveling to Big Bear Lake and looking for a lively and touristy scene, then Big Bear Lake Central is the best neighborhood to secure accommodations, like The Robinhood Resort, especially during ski season. It gets busy, so if you have the ability to plan your trip well in advance, make sure to book your room early, especially if you’re hoping to find cheap hotels in Big Bear Lake. For travelers who are looking for a romantic couples’ holiday, the western edge of Big Bear Lake Central may provide a little more seclusion. Take a look at the Castle Wood Theme Cottages. In the summer, the area provides good access to hiking trails and the marina.


Learn about attractions and sights in Big Bear Lake

What are the most popular attractions in Big Bear Lake?

Big Bear Lake is more than an hour's drive east of Los Angeles—and expect to pay more for renting equipment, although the area is a great place to enjoy outdoor adventure. In the warmer months, we recommend challenging yourself on one, or multiple, of the many hikes around the reservoir, such as the moderately difficult Castle Rock Trail near the Boulder Bay area or the Cougar Crest Trail to the north. Bring the whole family and wander along the Alpine Pedal Path, also in the northern area. If you’re looking for some solo time, there's good fishing to be found in Big Bear Lake Central; but before you cast your line into the water, make sure to secure your fishing license. In the winter months, take advantage of the local ski resorts, like Snow Summit and Bear Mountain in Big Bear Lake East. Lift tickets and rental equipment here will cost you a bit.

Which neighborhoods in Big Bear Lake have a large selection of bars and restaurants?

You’ll find a clump of hotels in Big Bear Lake near where the most bustling tourist spots are located: Big Bear Lake Central and Big Bear Lake East, the former offering a number of spots for entertainment and restaurants, such as Peppercorn Grille and 572 Social Kitchen & Lounge. There are also some great nightlife venues, like Club Bombay and Avalanche Night Club. Big Bear Lake East has fewer bars and restaurants, but the options are still good: Captains Anchorage serves steaks and seafood, and BLT’s Restaurant serves classic American fare.

What popular events take place in Big Bear Lake?

Big Bear Lake is a tourist and vacation hot spot, so there’s something fun to be found each weekend, all year-round. However, some of the most exciting events are annual festivities, such as the Grill and Chill event, which the town hosts each Memorial Day Weekend in the Big Bear Lake Central neighborhood. Free for all and open to all ages, the festivities offer live music, a kids play area, a cornhole tournament, a beer garden, and, of course, a cook-off featuring experienced pit-masters. In June, Big Bear Lake hosts Fishin' for 50K, which is a trout-fishing tournament for anglers of all ages. There is a fee for entering the tournament, and that doesn’t cover the cost of getting a fishing license. Spectating is free. The tournament is also held in the same neighborhood as the Chill & Grill event, and you can book hotels in Big Bear Lake nearby.
