Top Reasons to Stay at Big Bear Lake Mallard Bay Resort

  • Located in the San Bernardino National Forest, east of Los Angeles, Big Bear Lake Mallard Bay Resort is composed of a cluster of rustic cabins situated on the southern shores of Big Bear Lake.
  • Guests can head to the courtyard to relax beside the outdoor fireplace, grill on the community barbecue, or play volleyball.
  • The heated outdoor pool opens Memorial Day weekend.
  • Boaters and jet-skiers can moor their watercraft at a free private dock.
  • Cabins range in size from studios to three-bedroom units. Some have fully equipped kitchens.
  • The cabins are located roughly a half mile from Big Bear Lake Village, so it’s an easy walk to restaurants, souvenir shops, and other attractions.
  • With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, Big Bear Lake is a hive of outdoor activity no matter the season. Boating, swimming, and hiking are popular in the spring and summer.

Big Bear Lake, California: Outdoorsy Resort Community in the Foothills of the Sierra Nevadas

The resort community of Big Bear Lake centers on the body of water it’s named after—an alpine lake situated nearly 7,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest and the snowy peaks of the San Bernardino Mountains. Los Angeles is less than 100 miles to the west, which is probably why Big Bear Valley has served as a backdrop for so many films and TV shows, including The Parent Trap, Doctor Dolittle, and Bonanza.

The lake is a popular destination for boating, fishing, and swimming during the warm months. You’ll find miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails in the surrounding forest. The 2-mile Castle Rock Trail weaves through groves of pine and cedar trees and past a waterfall before rewarding trekkers with a summit view of the lake. But Big Bear isn’t entirely rustic—head to the village, located on the south shore, for restaurants, shopping, an arcade, a bowling alley, and a visitors' center.

True to its name, the area once supported a thriving grizzly-bear population. Though that’s no longer the case, you still might see bald eagles, mule deer, coyotes, gray foxes, and even the occasional bobcat or black bear. For a guaranteed glimpse of wildlife, visit the Big Bear Alpine Zoo at Moonridge, a rehabilitation facility for injured and orphaned wild animals that counts mountain lions, grizzly bears, and wolves among its residents.
