“This is a lovely park next to Big Bear Lake that we spent about half an hour at on our way to an Airbnb further into Big Bear. There’s a long green patch of grass for kids to run around and stretch their legs. There are also relatively clean restrooms. You can rent kayaks nearby to go down the dock on the lake. Note that the ramp down to the dock is a bit slippery, and there are large gaps in the railing that kids can easily fall through into the water, so keep an eye on your little ones.”
“This place is beautiful! The air is fresh and crisp. It’s a nice getaway from LA, without taking too much time to get away from the big city. A refuge. So take some time out of the smog and enjoy a nice picnic in the mountains!”
“Always a great afternoon at Boulder Bay Park! You just can’t visit Big Bear without stopping by BBP. Have ever seen the cool pictures of friends and families by the big wooden bear? Well, this is where you will find that awesome and memorable photo opp. I’m pretty sure some people come to Big Bear just for that! Lol. This is best place to launch your kayak and access the lake. You can fish from shore or the doc, and you can even launch a small row boat. (No swimming, but I’ve seen water skiing) In the park there and nice picnic tables on a beautiful plot of green grass. There is a gazebo for shade, and nice bathrooms for use. You can row to the island near by and get off for a little nap or some exploration. It gets very busy on holidays, but during the week you might get it mostly to yourself! If you are heading on it is one of the first landmarks and stopping point you will probably notice. Which means it’s a nice place to stop before making your way down the mountain too. My wife and I always stop here, and it’s one of the highlights of our trip I highly recommend saving some time to read and relax by the lake at Boulder Bay Park on yoir trip to Big Bear.”
