Big Bear Lake’s Most Popular Experiences

As a resort town, you can be sure that activities both on the ground and on the water are plentiful. Let’s check out some of the great things you can get into on the water.

Try your Luck at Game Fishing
Lake fishing has always been the number one activity of choice for locals, daytrippers, and holidaymakers. The deep water in Big Bear makes it a top-notch location to fish for rainbow trout. You can also reel in catfish and largemouth bass.

Get your Heart Racing
Skiing and snowboarding in the winter is not the only adrenaline-pumped action you can have at Big Bear. Down from the mountain slopes and into the lake’s flats, become a king of the waters as you fly across at high velocities.

Party on in this Forested Lake
Not all of SoCal’s best day parties are on the golden Pacific coast; some great ones can be created on the waters of the woodland lake a couple of hours drive away. Enjoy a cruise with your friends in this picturesque paradise.

Big Bear Lake’s Best Bodies of Water

Scout out the Southside for Marina Fun

You can find a whole host of marina fun on the Southern banks when you dock your Big Bear boat rental. Shops and restaurants along the promenade will entice you in as you make a quick break on your tour around the lake.

Find Peace and Tranquility in the North

The lake’s Northside is also a great place to potter around in a Big Bear boat rental. Here you will find a quieter shoreline than the activity laden southside. Cut your engine and listen to the sounds of the birds or dock and open up your picnic basket. A quiet escape awaits.

Make an East to West Dash

The 7-mile distance from the east end to the west end is the perfect spot to take on your friends in another Big Bear rental boat in a safe race. Get off your marks, and get to high speeds as you attempt to beat your buddies to the other side of the lake.
