Big Bear Code of Conduct – $250 – $500 and $1000 fines and evictions
Southern California’s Premier 4-Season Resort Community Thank you for choosing to vacation in Big Bear Lake. We are pleased to welcome over 1.2 million visitors per year to our beautiful community. Whether you are here to enjoy the abundant natural features and amenities found in our surrounding forest or looking for some rest and relaxation in our quiet and tranquil residential neighborhoods, we trust your experience will be world-class.
While enjoying your time in our mountain community, we’d like to remind you of some important community expectations for guests staying in our residential neighborhoods. We also want to provide some tips that will make your stay more enjoyable and help you vacation like a local. The last thing we want is for your visit to be interrupted by one of our Compliance Officers. We thank you and your family & friends can have an amazing vacation while still being respectful and considerate to the neighbors around you. These rules and expectations are permitted by the City of Big Bear Lake. Not set by Destination Big Bear.
Expectations for guest behavior
Sound carries differently at higher elevations (thinner air) and in varying topography than it does on flat land at sea level. Sound in the mountains can carry for miles (listen for the coyotes at night). A normal private conversation between two people on a deck may be clearly heard from many houses away. Amplified music can me heard a mile or more away from the stereo speaker. For these reasons, we have strict rules about amplified music and outdoor activities at night. Please help us maintain our quiet neighborhoods and enjoy the amazing stillness and tranquility that the forest provides.
