Big Bear Lake East
The area designated “Big Bear Lake East” is located on the south shore, and is bordered by the National Forest to the south, and the lake to the north. The area begins at the east edge of The Village, and runs all the way to Moonridge and Fox Farm on the east.
Bisected by Big Bear Boulevard, the area is home to popular subdivisions including Summit Estates, Heavenly Valley, Winterpark, Eagle Point and upscale Eagle Point Estates, and Eagle’s Knoll.
Within the Bear Lake East area are some of the most popular shopping destinations, including the Staters, Interlaken and K-Mart centers. It also hosts a variety of other businesses, some of Big Bear’s best restaurants, the Bear Valley Community Hospital and Public Library, and a host of medical and professional services. Two of the Valley schools are within the area.
Recreation opportunities abound, with the area anchored by the Snow Summit resort, and Meadow Park and the seasonal Swim Beach just two blocks off the Boulevard to the north. Access to miles of hiking and biking trails can be accessed from the area, including via the Snow Summit Sky Chair transporting riders to the top of the resort in the spring and summer.
