Lake Activities

Big Bear Lake is open for the season

Spring through autumn, Big Bear Lake is open for tours, fishing, boating, jet skiing, kayaking and more. The lake is Big Bear's prime summer recreation hub and with so many ways to enjoy, you'll want to add some lake fun to your getaway!

Big Bear marinas typically open in April to late May and offer a range of rentals from pontoon boats to fishing boats, kayaks, jet skis, and stand up paddleboards. Select marinas also offer lessons in wakeboarding and waterskiing.

If you're more into relaxing on the water without manning the captain's wheel, a lake tour might be just the ticket. A number of scenic tour boats sail daily on the lake offering a little history, a little entertainment, and a whole lot of views.

Keep Big Bear Lake Clean

Big Bear Municipal Water District and the community works hard to maintain the safety of Big Bear Lake for visitors and a healthy environment for wildlife. Help us out by disposing of trash in designated bins, cleaning up hooks and fishing line, refraining from feeding wildlife, and adopting a shoreline!

The Adopt-a-Shoreline program is an excellent opportunity for kids, adults and community groups to participate in a great outdoor activity, help the environment, and keep Big Bear Lake beautiful! BBMWD
