Big Bear Discovery Center

Big Bear Discovery Center Review

At this nature center you can sign up for a canoe ride through Grout Bay or a naturalist-led tour of the Baldwin Lake Ecological Reserve or the Holcomb Valley, where a small gold rush took place more than a century ago. Exhibits here explain the area's flora and fauna, and staffers provide maps and camping and hiking information.
