    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Outdoor enthusiast will love Big Bear Lake in any season. What started as an irrigation project became the worlds' largest man-made lake of its time in the late 19th century.

    The lake is bordered by the cities of Fawnskin and Big Bear City. The area was originally settled by Serrano Indians and became popular with bear hunters. Later, Big Bear became a gold prospecting town.

    The mountain communities built up around tourism fought for and won a battle for control of the lake. This hard fought battle allowed locals to stabilize lake levels guaranteeing consistent recreational and wildlife usage.

    Although you can still see bears in Big bear, today the area is known for skiing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, boating, and fishing.

    In the summer the Lake is filled with people in small boats. There's water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, wakeboarding, kayaking and canoeing.

    It's time to venture off the Lake in winter and spring and hit the slopes. There is a bevy of snow filled activities during the winter months. Skiing, snowboarding, sledding are all apart of the winter land merriment.

    During October, Big Bear City throws a great Oktoberfest celebration. During July 4th weekend you can attend Old Miner's Days. In December, you can celebrate Christmas in the village.
