Before everyone gets too excited or falls victim to the multitude of rumors floating around about Big Bear Lake opening up to boating May 1st...Here are the FACTS!

The East Public Launch Ramp will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parking lot capacity at the ramp will be limited to 25 vehicles that are carrying vessels.

Mike Stephenson, (G.M. MWD) said adherence to the Phase 1 rules will be strictly enforced. Registered boats must have current permits, which can be obtained by calling the office at the East Boat Ramp. Banded boats are boats that were inspected and banded at the end of last year’s season.

Following county and state requirements under Phase 1, NO RESTROOMS will be available, including the SS Reliefs. Boaters are REQUIRED to wear face masks while recreating on the lake and communicating with lake staff. A Maximum of FOUR people from the SAME HOUSEHOLD will be allowed on each vessel. Marinas may launch banded, slip holder boats only.

Under Phase 1 there will be NO BOAT RENTALS allowed on Big Bear Lake. MWD General Manager Mike Stephenson told the board that marinas are aware that rentals are not included in the Phase 1 of operations on the lake.

These are the rules. Please follow them. BBSG remains closed in accordance with State and Local guidelines for non-essential businesses at this time.
