Because the landscape of Big Bear is so magnificent, it may be a bit difficult choosing just a few parks that outshine the others. Everywhere we turn in our mountain village, each new view seems to be more stunning than the last, but we are definitely going to give it a try. The parks listed here all offer that little extra something that changes their ranking from wonderful to extraordinary. These are the most beautiful Big Bear parks, and if you have the time, adding them to your vacation itinerary will add an extra sparkle to an already perfect getaway!
Perfect for picnics and kayaking in the summer, hikes along the shores of the lake, and simply for being a place to relax and collect your thoughts. The boulders from which this stunning park has earned its name add something to photos taken here, and the trees and hills that surround the area increase its beauty even more. Take a quiet walk with your thoughts or a more rambunctious one with your family and be sure to stop along the way and enjoy the views from the benches you will find throughout the park.
A park is often described as an area in the center of town designed for recreational use, and although the Aspen Glen Picnic Area doesn’t quite match that description, enjoying a picnic among the simple grandeur of the trees that surround the area may end up being the highlight of your vacation. Located in the San Bernadino National Forest, the picnic tables, grills, and fire pit of this Big Bear park offer a great place to relax before you start your hike along the trails; be sure to bring your camera—the views to be found in this scenic area are breathtaking year-round!
As we near the season of thanks, we often find our thoughts directed to the veterans that have faithfully served our country throughout the years, and if you are looking for a quiet and scenic spot to reflect on their sacrifices, Veteran’s Park is the place to visit. Located on the banks of Big Bear Lake and surrounded by hills and trees, your Christmas card photo with the family will be the talk of the town.
It’s the little things that make up our most treasured memories: sharing secrets with your best friends after years apart, watching your children grow into adults you really like, and family vacations spent with your children while they are young and still think you are the best parents in the world. Staying in a Big Bear Cabins vacation escape will make your California vacation a memorable one—reserve yours today!
