Visit Big Bear Lake



Big Bear Lake is the perfect destination for a family vacation in the spring! As the desert heats up below, Big Bear Lake cabin rentals are a great escape from the heat. Trees begin to bud and bloom, birds start building nests and the summer crowds haven’t arrived yet. Here are 5 reasons to visit Big Bear Lake in spring.


The snow has pretty much melted except on the slopes and higher elevations. As the weather begins to warm up, the wildflowers begin to bloom and the trees become a little more green. Birds start to build their nests and mornings are filled with song. A Big Bear Lake cabin rental is the ideal place to sit back on the deck enjoying the mild temperatures, blue skies, warm sun and fresh spring air.

The Drive

Spring is generally a slower tourist season which means you have time to enjoy the drive to your Big Bear Lake cabin rental. No matter which road you choose to take there are plenty of opportunities to pull over and enjoy the fabulous vistas. Yellow wildflowers line the highways and create a cheerful element in photographs. Leave the bumper to bumper traffic of the city and enjoy the slower pace of life in your vacation rental in Big Bear Lake.


The San Bernardino National Forest in spring is a hikers dream. Cool temps, fewer hikers and wonderful lake views can be seen through trees that haven’t quite gotten their leaves. Look out for muddy trails from melting snow and keep an eye out for wildlife that is also out enjoying the change in season. The Big Bear Discovery Center is a great resource for trail maps and information about the local flora and fauna to enjoy in Big Bear Lake in spring.

Lake Activities

Big Bear Lake officially opens in spring which means tons of fun out on the water! Take a charter boat out for deep water fishing or just relax on a pontoon boat with family and friends.

There are several marinas in Big Bear Lake that are staffed with friendly, knowledgeable people ready to help you and your family have a great time. Bringing your own boat?
