This was our first trip to Big Bear in a very long time. We just needed a base of operations for doing some off-roading. Chose Golden Bear because of the good reviews. We would probably not go back to Big Bear because it is too crowded and busy to be restful. Unfortunately we ended up with a cabin (basically one room with a small bathroom attached) that was right along the road. The traffic coming up from LA was very loud and kept us awake until about midnight. Then at 2 am some partiers were banging on our front door looking for a different cabin. We didn't need a pool or the play ground. On the plus side it was clean, although when we first came in it had a very strong smell of some sort of odd air freshener. Luckily I had brought some apple cinnimon tea that I boiled for an hour and that took are of the smell.
