WELCOME TO 2 LEGGED AND 4 LEGGED GUESTS!
Big Bear added pets to the campground in 2010 and has been so impressed with pet owners that we have decided to add this to some of our cottages in 2012. There will be a $5.00 per day pet fee and a refundable $150.00 pet deposit for cottage pets.
Cottages 15, 16, 21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29 will all be pet friendly as well as the Chalets.
So come on down and bring the WHOLE family this time!
Trailer Parking, D dock and E dock all have new lower introductory yearly rates. See the marina page for more info.

We have been fortunate enough to find old brochures and postcards from the 1950's. Have a look at $2.00 a night lodging and boats and cars from the past. The old timers say that fish jumped in your boat!
