If you are considering Big Bear or Running Springs....
Running Springs sits at 6100' elevation and is on the west side of mountain, easier and faster to reach from Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.
Big Bear Lake sits at 6800' elevation and is on the backside of mountain. You will drive through Running Springs on the way to Big Bear.
Running Springs is a small tranquil town and Big Bear is more of a hustle and bustle town. We are conveniently located to all the main attractions on the mountain.
