Big Bear Lake is the perfect summer setting to make some Labor Day memories. Beat the heat and head to the mountains for a fun-filled holiday weekend.
Come enjoy some of Southern California’s best hiking and biking trails, plenty of family-friendly outdoor activities, and of course, all the fun to be had out on the lake!
Hit the Trails
Big Bear is home to miles and miles of National Forest trails. Grab a bike, or tie up your boot laces, and hit the trails. From easy strolls on paved paths to challenging hikes through changing terrains, there is a route for every ability.
Head for the Lake
Big Bear Lake has something for everyone – boat rentals, fishing, jet skiing, swimming, boat tours, and great spots for kayaking and stand-up paddle (SUP). Family and friends also love gathering for a picnic on the shoreline where you can relax amongst the scenic surroundings. Please be sure to help keep Big Bear clean and dispose of all your trash!
Big Bear offers fun for the whole family with plenty of outdoor activities to choose from. Play on the Tarzan Boat – a floating waterpark on the lake, or navigate a sled down a whizzing cement track, take a thrilling coaster ride on the Mineshaft Coaster, and twist and turn down a water slide at Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, or race around the go-kart track, and fly through an ariel obstacle course at Big Bear Speedway & Ropes Course.
Historians of all ages will love discovering Big Bear’s rich mining history at Gold Rush Mining Adventures, Big Bear Discover Center, and Big Bear History Museum, or learning about local wildlife conservation at Big Bear Alpine Zoo.
