Big Bear is southern California's premier vacation and recreation area; offering fishing, water sports, hiking, golfing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and a wide variety of winter sports. Worldmark at Big Bear is located 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles, surrounded by the San Bernadino National Forest. The resort is about three miles from most activities. Come enjoy the local shopping, fine dining and live entertainment in Big Bear Village. Activities include golf, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, and the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit ski areas. You'll find yourself almost 7,000 feet above sea level in a mecca of sunshine and clear air—so clear there's a solar observatory you can tour right on the lake's edge. This is where mountain bikers glide down fire roads, skiers carve through snow and hikers dip into pure blue water after rambling through mountain meadows. If that's not enough, there's four-wheeling, horseback rides, fishing, snowmobiling and boating—nectar for those frayed nerves. It 's the Big Bear Lake battery recharger. You'll want to experience it again and again.
Another resort in the area you may like is Lagonita Lodge. Lagonita Lodge is located on the shore of Big Bear Lake in Southern California in San Bernardino National Forest. Take a dip in the indoor pool, or soak in the warmth of the Jacuzzi. You can enjoy the solitude of the resort or be a part of the small-town environment that gives Big Bear Lake its special character. Be sure to enjoy boating, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding in the summer and take advantage of close by cross-country and downhill skiing in the winter.
