Deer Group Campground

  • Deer Group Campground is a great place to bring an extended family or large group. Its convenient location provides access to all of the area's greatest recreation opportunities and lets campers relax and enjoy nature in the pine-covered mountains of Southern California.

    A variety of hiking and mountain biking trails can be accessed from the campground, including the Seven Oaks Trail, which is located west of the Big Bear Lake Village. The 30-year-old trail is overgrown in some areas, but leads to spectacular views of San Gorgonio Peak, the highest point in Southern California. Fishing and boating at Big Bear Lake are popular activities. Anglers can look forward to trout, bluegill, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass, among other fish. Because of cold water temperatures and the presence of underwater obstacles near the shorelines, swimming at the lake is somewhat discouraged, unless done in designated areas.

    This group campground is located in the San Bernardino National Forest, south of Big Bear Lake. It is situated in a somewhat secluded stand of conifers. The mature trees provide much shade for the campground.
