“Boat tour”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Spend sometimes walking around the lake and it is quite pleasant.

Also take the Miss Liberty boat trip in the lake and the trip around 1.5 to 2 hrs. Cost per passenger is USD 20.-. The boat can accommodate around 120 passengers and it is good to rest your legs.

There is a parking area in the pier but they charge USD 10.- for parking when we arrived around half an hour before the trip. When we finished the trip, the man was no longer there and parking became free again. It also happened that when we purchased the boat ticket earlier in the morning, the parking area was unstaffed and free also.

Pay attention when you take the boat trip and find parking somewhere else as I would say that collection of parking fee is at their discretion.

“GREAT getaway.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Left home and it was 117 degrees. 2 hours later....79 degrees. Beautiful weather. Took 5 mile bike ride on Alpine Pedal Path, absolutely beautiful views of the lake. Miss Liberty lake tour at the Marina is cool and quite informative. Town is quite laid back and at a nice slower pace than at the bottom of the mountain.

“Week end Trip to Big Bear Lake”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We had a fantastic alpine vacation in Big Bear Lake. It is around 99 miles northeast of Los Angeles and is surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest. It is at an altitude of 7000 feet and its surrounding is dominated by pine and oak forests. It got its name because the area used to be swarming with grizzly bears! If anyone prefers lots of sunshine for more than 300 days of a year and pleasant temperature, then Big Bear is the place. The blue freshwater lake is about 7 miles long and 1 mile across at its widest point. Big Bear Lake can boast of the finest freshwater fishing place with an abundance of trout, bass, catfish and blue gill. One can spend the days by fishing, boating, water-skiing, wind surfing, parasailing, jet skiing and what not! Serene blue lake surrounded by the mountains and pine & oak forests make a wonderful landscape. Its beauty is awesome. If opportunity comes I would like to come back to this romantic place once again.
