Summer Activities

Big Bear Lake is the perfect destination for summer fun in the sun. With its wide range of activities, there’s something for everyone.

Enjoy a day at the Big Bear Farmers Market, browsing through fresh produce and unique handmade items. Try your hand at fishing during the annual Big Bear Lake Fishing Tournament – with prizes up for grabs you might just be lucky enough to land the big one.

Or head to Bluff Lake Reserve and soak up breathtaking views while exploring nature trails that lead to a tranquil lake. Boat rentals offer an opportunity to explore the lake on your own terms, or you can opt for a kayak or canoe.

For more thrill-seeking adventure, check out go-kart racing, or take a break on the fairways of the Bear Mountain Golf Course. Horse Camp and horseback riding are also available for those looking to experience Big Bear from the back of a horse.

Miss Liberty Paddlewheel Boat Tours offer magnificent views of the lake, while mountain bike rentals provide an invigorating way to explore the surrounding terrain.

Why not give paddleboarding or wakeboarding a try, or take a ride on the Village Pirate Ship?

Segway tours, the Snow Summit Scenic Sky Chair and Wave Runner Rentals are all available for extra fun in Big Bear Lake.

No matter what brings you here, you’re sure to find something that will make your summer one to remember.
