This is true, well at least it used to be true. I haven't been in a long time. We would have to wait for a long time to get on, and you had to get there early. Ramp was wide and nice at the time.Silverwood in a reservation lake and they are usually really booked on weekends. last person I know that went there had to get there at 6 am to try and get one of the 50 none reserved spots. Big Bear doesn't have that problem.
I tow up there a lot... Without a doubt, the back way on the 18 is what you want to do.. The back way has a fraction of twisty miles, I think 8 miles then you're up there.. The front was is fast and stressful towing, especially on a Friday..Any thoughts from those who have towed up the mountian? 330, the fastest, 18 or 38 the longest. Which is the best towing. We will be coming form SD, is it worth it to take a longer route?
I thought you had to be a resident or property owner to boat on Big Bear at least thats what everyone kept telling me when i was up there a few months ago...Big Bear Lake is beautiful. They won't allow any boats over 26' and there is a $25.00 charge for the day use permit. Haven't been to Silverwood in years but I know it gets crowded. We used to have to camp out the night before to be in the line to get on the lake.
