Big Bear Lake is a small city in San Bernardino County, California, located in the San Bernardino Mountains along the south shore of Big Bear Lake, and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest. Kids will appreciate attractions like Big Bear Alpine Zoo at Moonridge and Pine Knot Trail. Visiting Joshua Tree National Park and Keys View will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Big Bear Lake side-trips: Joshua Tree National Park (Hidden Valley Nature Trail, Barker Dam Trail, &more), Coyote Corner (in Joshua Tree) and Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness (in Idyllwild). The adventure continues: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Calico Ghost Town, get your game on at Gold Rush Mining Adventures, don't miss a visit to Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, and hit the slopes at Big Bear Lake.
