Please Practice Respect
We ask that all guests commit to keeping Big Bear Lake safe for everyone to enjoy. Masks are required when entering local stores and restaurants, and we urge everyone to social distance whenever possible. Please be respectful of any rules businesses have in place, they are meant to keep staff and patrons safe and to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Leave No Trace
Whether you're enjoying a lake-side picnic, a scenic hike, or fishing trip excursion, please remember to leave no trace by taking your trash with you. Garbage left in the forest or around the lake is not only an eyesore, but harmful for local wildlife and can lead to fines! Together we can keep Big Bear beautiful and sustainable for generations to come.

Crowded trails? Consider an earlier start time.

Popular trails in Big Bear Lake were heavily trafficked during the summer. Parking at trails such as Castle Rock is limited, and parking in turn-outs far away from the trail-head create dangerous situations. Consider exploring another trail or starting your hiking adventure at an earlier time to avoid overcrowding and hazardous parking.
