The “Bear” facts of Summer in the Mountains

Lake Levels are on the Rise

Historically, the levels of Big Bear Lake tend to decrease as we approach the fall season. Even though we are seeing that trend continue, we are seeing levels of almost six feet higher than this same time last year. Higher water levels allow for a longer season of watersports including boating and fishing. The combination of higher water levels and perfect temperatures makes Big Bear Lake an angler’s paradise.

Enjoy the Beauty of Big Bear during Fall

Cool, crisp air and the changing of the leaves officially means that fall has arrived! Big Bear Lake offers a variety of fun activities for the entire family!

Fall Hikes and Mountain Drives

Fall colors have arrived to Big Bear Lake so now is the time to go for a fall hike or a scenic drive before it is too late to see the beautiful foliage. Fall colors tend to be more prominent on the south side of the lake so stay in that area and you are sure to see some picturesque views. 


Big Bear Oktoberfest runs through the first weekend in November and offers many different activities for everyone that attends. Sundays are family days with free admission for children 12 and under. The Kinder Garten has game booths, balloon artists, face painting and a bounce house the kids can also enjoy throughout the day.

Halloween in the Village

The free Halloween in the Village event runs from 5-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31. The event has more than 50 places for kids wearing costumes to get candy as you walk through the fall-festive Village. Your dogs are welcome in the Village too! A pet costume contest will begin at 4 p.m. at The Copper Q restaurant on Pine Knot Avenue.
