BEAR LAKE VACATION RENTALS - CALIFORNIA, USA
Bear Lake is a reservoir in the San Bernardino Mountains in San Bernardino
County, California, United States. At a surface elevation of 6,750 ft,
it has an east-west length of approximately 7 miles (11.2 km) and is approximately
2.5 miles (4 km) at its widest measurement, though the lake's width mostly
averages a little more than 1 mile (1.6 km). These approximations are based
on the lake having an optimum retainable water level. At dam's end Big
Bear measures its deepest water at 72 feet (22 m). It is a completely snow-fed
lake having no other means of tributary or mechanical replenishment.
Big Bear Lake provides an
attractive setting for many outdoor activities, including fishing (trout,
bluegill, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass), pleasure boating, and
water skiing. Because of the very cold water and the presence of underwater
obstacles near the shorelines, swimming is discouraged. The lake is patrolled
by the BBMWD Lake Patrol.
Many lakeside residents have
private docks, and visiting boaters obtain mooring in several of the marinas
found on both shores. Big Bear Municipal Water District (a special district
of the State of California) provides public launches on the east end and
west end of North Shore. Local marinas rent various sport and pleasure
boats, and parasailing is available.
