Holiday in Lake Arrowhead

Orientation

Soak Up the Natural Beauty of Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead is a popular resort in California's San Bernardino National Forest. The resort has grown up around the lake of the same name (which is actually a reservoir), which nestles in the forest like a blue jewel. This natural beauty constantly attracts visitors all year-round to hike, fish, water ski, and even ski. It's an amazing destination for outdoor activities.

Getting to Know Lake Arrowhead

Although we tend to refer to Lake Arrowhead as a resort, it's actually a cluster of communities, all of which are gathered around the lake's edge. So, you might choose a vacation rental in Cedar Glen, Twin Peaks, Blue Jay, Rim Forest, Sky Forest, or Lake Arrowhead – and each has its own amenities and character. The lake itself is small enough to walk around, at 782 acres, and its shore stretches for 14 miles.

Find Your Way to Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead is easy to get to, mainly because it lies at the meeting point of California Routes 173 and 189. It's also not far from major population centers like San Bernardino and Los Angeles, and you can get there from Los Angeles International (LAX) in just over two and a half hours.

Activities in Lake Arrowhead, CA

A Superb Outdoor Destination

Some of the scenery around Lake Arrowhead is simply stunning, and outdoor recreational opportunities are the area's biggest draw. Follow a portion of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, head to Deep Creek Hot Springs, and you can even ski at Snow Valley Ski Resort.

A Surprising Boutique Shopping Center

Lake Arrowhead Village is a wonderful place to shop for handmade craft goods, with an emphasis on leather goods like bags, belts, and boots, as well as jewelry and clothing. And it's crammed with great eating spots, too.

A Water Sports Paradise

Lake Arrowhead itself is a major water skiing center. But nearby Lake Gregory plays host to an even bigger range of activities. You can hire fishing boats, take out a jet ski, try wakeboarding, kayak, swim or just relax on the shoreline.

Lake Arrowhead became a favorite place for Hollywood celebrities to purchase properties in the 1930s and 40s, with local residents including Doris Day, Howard Hughes, and Marilyn Monroe.

Top 5 Things to Do in Lake Arrowhead

1. Take A Cruise on the Arrowhead Queen

The pride of Lake Arrowhead, this 19th century pleasure craft runs daily tours of the lake from Leroy's Boardhouse, and on-board guides will tell you all about the area's fascinating past.

2. Head to the Tudor House

In the 1930s, Lake Arrowhead was one of the major hangouts of Hollywood's elite, and nowhere more so than the Tudor House, built by gangster Bugsy Siegel. These days, it's a thriving entertainment venue and as opulent and impressive as ever.

3. Fish at Big Bear Lake

While Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, nearby Big Bear Lake is accessible to all, and it's a great place to land sunfish, bass, and rainbow trout, while Deep Creek and Bear Creek are great trout fishing streams.

4. Play A Round at Lake Arrowhead Country Club

If you're a keen golfer, Lake Arrowhead offers plenty of courses, but none are as enjoyable and well-kept as Lake Arrowhead Country Club, where bald eagles are known to appear on the fairways from time to time.

5. Try the Slopes at Snow Valley

When winter comes, Lake Arrowhead and the San Bernardino Mountains become a playground for Southern California's alpine sports fans. Snow Valley is the pick of the area's resorts, where Schighridj (pronounced “sky-ridge”) is heaven for boarders.

Useful Information

Understanding Lake Arrowhead's Rules and Regulations

For first-time visitors, it might seem odd that the lake itself is largely out of bounds. The reason is because Lake Arrowhead is classed as a private lake, so access is controlled by local residents, who have exclusive fishing and boating rights. However, you can water ski, providing you do so with the McKenzie School. But fishing is not permitted.

When is the Best Time to Visit Lake Arrowhead?

The truth is that there's not really a bad time to visit the resort. It's beautiful in every season. Then again, summer is definitely the peak period for vacationers, as the village hums with commerce and cultural life, and the weather is sublime for outdoor activities. Being at a lower altitude, it's slightly warmer than nearby Big Bear Lake, which is something to “bear” in mind.
