Big Bear Lake is a city in San Bernardino County, California along the south shore of Big Bear Lake, located 25 miles northeast of the city of San Bernardino. Big Bear Lake is a reservoir in the San Bernardino Mountains, in San Bernardino County, California, United States.
Big Bear Lake provides an attractive setting for many outdoor activities, including fishing (trout, bluegill, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass), pleasure boating, and water skiing. Because of the very cold water and the presence of underwater obstacles near the shorelines, swimming is discouraged.
Music, drinks, dancing and fun abound will take place on the Big Bear Lake shore with the annual Big Bear Lake JazzTrax Summer Music Festival. Located at the Marina Resort Lake Side Lawn, 40770 Lakeview Drive, a floating stage will feature the smooth sound of jazz bands doing their thing while spectators celebrate into the night.
