Big Bear Lake Filming
Big Bear has been Hollywood's backdrop for blockbuster movies like Gone with the Wind, Frankenstein, Magnolia, Beethoven's 3rd and War Games as well as numerous TV series and advertising shoots.
Just two hours from the entertainment capital of the world, Big Bear boasts Southern California's most beautiful scenery with rugged wilderness, blue skies, alpine lakes, high desert settings and breathtaking mountain vistas. Big Bear is an expert in costume change as each season brings a new feel to the valley.
Each winter, a blanket of snow creates a dreamy wonderland. Spring welcomes the colorful wildflowers and lush new growth. Summer is marked by warm, sunny weather, lazy days on the lake, and camping under the stars. The autumn landscape is painted by crimson and golden foliage.
This four-season resort community averages 300 days of sunny, clear skies annually with mild temps. Charming streetscapes and rustic cabins highlight Big Bear's quaint and historical feel while trails, ski resorts, and watersports play to Big Bear's outdoor adventure identity.
