It's a reservoir so no natural flow. A lot of boating activities. Very large but not the prettiest. A lot of areas to fish. Random observatory on one side of the lake.

Big Bear Lake is just 2 hours from LA, but seems like a world away. The smell of pine trees, the quaint little town that offers fantastic restaurants and quirky souvenir shops, and the beautiful lake that serves as the centerpiece of Big Bear makes a trip here feel like you're in Colorado or Vermont ski town. I took a trip there in the summer and it was beautiful - can't wait to visit in during the winter.

This easy to get to 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin backs to the National forest. It is close to everything, 1 block to the golf course, 4 blocks to Bear Mountain and the Moonridge Zoo. Hike and bike out the back door for miles. It has a wrap around deck with a hot tub viewing the National forest. There is tons of space on this large double lot with plenty of room for parking. There are TV's in both bedrooms with either DVD players or netflix boxes. It has free wifi free local calling. The kitchen has all new appliances including a dishwasher.

Summer: hiking, parasailing, jet-skiing, boating, fishing, tanning, and swimming. Winter: skiing, snowboarding, toboggan runs, sledding, and warm cozy cabins. There's no shortage of things to do year-round, but keep in mind this is a difficult place to access in the winter, as the dizzy mountain roads leading up to it will be icy and dangerous.

My grandmother had a house overlooking Big Bear Lake and I would rent a horse for $1.50/hour and ride it up to the back of her house. Now horseback riding costs $20/hr and you have to "walk" your horse with 20 other people and a quide!! So boring!!! I would ride alone for over 2 hours on the biggest horse they would give me and I was 8,9,10 yrs old.
