Boulder Bay Park
Our family had a fantastic time looking at the amazing views at the lake
Relatively new park in beautiful Boulder Bay is great for photos year-round. There’s a small beach, benches and fishing pier. When there’s snow on the ground, the grassy field provides ample space for rolling snowmen or a snowball fight.
Most scenic and popular spot on the lake. Picnic tables, gazebos, restrooms, walking paths, grassy areas for your dogs and kids to play. In the summer, you can rent kayaks nearby and launch from here.
“This shady, forested picnic area is a day use area only. There is a community fire ring, picnic tables, BBQ’s, parking and public restrooms. You can access the Pineknot Trail from the picnic area if you want to do some hiking. Pineknot Trail is a moderate to difficult trail. This picnic area requires a $5 Adventure Pass for parking. Adventure Passes are available at the Big Bear Visitors Center or the Discovery Center.”
“This is about as easy as it gets, there’s no dirt involved either. The fully paved Alpine Pedal Path extends 2.5 miles one way on the North Shore from Stanfield Cutoff to the Solar Observatory (or vice versa). A diversion about halfway through will also take you to the Cougar Crest trail head and the Big Bear Discovery Center. You have options here!”
“My fiancée and I love to take our Berner and 8 month old to Stanfield Marsh (Baker's Pond). Our dog loves to run through the overgrowth and play with other friendly dogs”
“If you love home-cooking and comfort food, this is the place! MUST TRY: Chicken Pot Pie and Pot Roast! Not to mention the amazing pies! CASH ONLY”
